Hospital poem #9: Full Cast
To all, whose names I’ve not got, right here by my cot,
I’m quite grateful as well, for how you helped me feel swell,
And sorry I can’t give you a personal chant.
So this will have to make do, for I’d give you your due.
From the start of my arrival, you ensured my survival.
Registered me with care,
Despite the ongoing repair,
Making you do, more than your share.
Asked me the same questions (again and again),
Slowly getting more info, while helping me grin.
Diagnosed me with care, not willing to err.
Wheeled me to room 248, with a gentle, slow gait.
Observed me all night, until all was right.
You all did your part, but I hope to depart.
Never to be seen, again in this scene.
