I Challenged the Doc

When I went to the doctors  

I knew what he’d say 

Let’s see how you’ve grown 

Let’s see how much you weigh. 

With the greatest of worries 

I stepped on the scale 

I knew I was overweight 

Yup, hit the head of the nail. 

The doctor he looked at me 

Full of sick dread 

“you’d better lose weight 

Or you’ll soon wind up dead!” 

Then I got off the scale  

And knew the needle was next 

One jab of that thing 

Oh, my muscles did flex! 

To inoculate me 

In such a worrisome state 

Has made me forget  

The time and the date. 

So, I got up to leave 

And I said to the doc 

Next time it’s your turn 

And you can take stock 

Of how bad that thing hurts 

Maybe you even know 

But the look on your face 

Tells me I’d better just go.

      1. We had one like that, so told him to take them out instead. This one as a child was always giving me fillings or taking teeth out for a brace that never fitted and cut into my gums. I told him to shove it, much to the shock of my mother!
