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
 
Unknowingly
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
 
Symptomatic
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
