A Parade

Doctors
Patients
Nurses
Came and went
Elevator doors
Opened, closed
For the confident
The scared, confused
Forms completed
Co-pays reconciled
Conversations
Rare, if at all
Two hours later
Successful outcome
It was over

THE WHY NOTS

Passions rose

Then receded

Punched the numbers

Punched them up

Scene stealers

House mom hated

Fires of fear

Sting of tears

Gift horses

Glass houses

From those that

Never lose

Daily body counts

Boarded up business

Accepted as normal

By unknown historians

Chili mac–paddy whack

Cha-ching–ring-a-ding

Hic ad hoc–tick tock

Went the why nots
