Hospital Haiku

Hospital Haiku


Night nurse draws blood
     Once danced Calypso
In Sierra Leone



Racking cough
     Sweeps through
Our sterile environment


Old woman
     Next-door
Won’t see Winter


Monotony rules
     Hospital blues
No end in sight


Out the window
     Only one balloon
Rises in the warm morning


Catnap
     In between
Learned prodding


All the Doctors
     Have the same name
And come from the East


Nurse wakes me
     Rolled over on
The damn call button again

Hot summer day
     Being released
Pull the IV

I hate hospitals. I'm glad you're free.

I'm all for IV's if they have red wine or vodka pumping through it.

Cherry: A nice dry Italian Red sounds good, but I don't think they'd go for it, besides, what's the point if you can't taste the wine??

Nice. Good food. Good poetry. Good folk. What more does a man need?

 
At 10:17 PM, Blogger The Phosgene Kid said...

SC: Good wine, of course!

You'll study harder
For your medical tests

Too funny. They take our IT support jobs, we get their witch doctors. Fair trade.

Now run ! Get better Kid !

Wine. How could I forget? Duh. How are you feeling PK? Everything go ok? Did you manage to behave yourself with the nurses?

 
At 7:50 PM, Blogger The Phosgene Kid said...

The nurses were nice, but kind of scary. I suppose they have to be or they'd never have gotten me to let them draw blood.

 
At 3:43 PM, Blogger SC said...

Were they cute-scary, or just plain scary? If the latter, could you consider making a complaint? Cute nurses are half the cure if you ask me.

SC: I always wind up with someone's mom. There was a blonde bird, but she needs to stay out of the sun, her skin looked like alligator hide.

Thanks to you all for your wishes, feeling much better. Managed to down some "house" chicken and Wor Wonton soup, so I am on the mend. Give me a couple more days and I'll be eating jalapenos out of the jar again.
