Bothersome Bloody Tests
by Rivka Conway
It’s that time of the month that ‘special day’
Is there much more to say?
Chemotherapy pills is the point.
Reminders in a big font
Every month, blood is drawn
Gently waiting in a queue, a ticket torn.
Blood tests, tissues dissected
Questions; issues clarified
Check for side effects, if any… out!
But if they say I’m cured, no doubt I’ll shout.
Waiting for the chemo doctor, sometimes new
Tell me something else true!
There has been a switch in doctors for six months
Making me feel tense.
Dr K has taken another post
Playing a different host.
See him when time is through
Hope I will remember him, who?
Checked pills given, pharmacy stamped.
Finally we are homeward bound
Of mind, assured and sound.
Taking pills following Nike - just do it!
Faith and hopes lit!
