Waiting Rooms

Waiting Room
      Waiting rooms
waiting room
      Nervous flock

Fidgety furtive
Eyes watching clock
Tick tock tick tock
Till names called out
 

Heave self off chair
upright sawdust legs
Quavering heartbeat
Prayers licked off lips
 

Suffer indignities
For greater good
Prevention better than
Cure, well understood
 

Now the infernal wait
An exercise done by rote
have lived life to fullest
ready for whatever they tell
