To the Editor:

It rang twice, but my nurse is busy

Waiting for the next dose is not easy.

My smothering is the same, but my pain is worse,

Lord, how about sending me a nurse?

Now I’m gasping for air, and hurting is bad,

Everybody thinks, I have gone mad.

My “Doc” is busy in an HMO meeting

Lord, would you be my doctor today?

IV pumps and heart monitors can’t speak

But one noisy word: Beep, Beep, Beep,

In this jungle, my whisper is hard to hear,

Lord, without a pager, would you hear me please?
