The waiting room

  The waiting room
with patients –
and patient understanding
Looking down
the phone rings loud
destroying sounds of silence
The baby cries
the mother meets
demands and tempered toils
The doctor calls
the chair departs
opinion turns to spoils
the reason why
she sits in care-free room
Her arm on show
she doesn’t know
if satisfied or gloom
Broken down
the problem grows
yet cannot be revealed
of an ageing tribe
unknowingly she feels
Referral is the
magic word and
one without decision
Pass it on
or pay it forward
delay will bring rescission
How to choose
how to improve
does one want to enter
The sooner left
set and forget
the problem can be vented
Expertise to find
another rind –
medicinally yearning
A better, smoother
stronger sense of
educated learning
Prefer prevention
than to treat –
but how to when not present
Round and round
the circle goes
the essence is dependence
