Mimimalist medical satire at a glance.

See "Funny Notes From Patients Charts"
(A slide show)

newlife sunbursts
from a swollen belly

premature. . .unfit to live

yet continues to thrive
anyway. . . in spite of &

we must never ask "why?"

oldlife cloudbursts
in the midst of human tears

fully ripe. . . unfit to linger

yet continues to be hooked up
anyway. . . in spite of &

we must never ask "why?"

midlife contemplates
in the waiting room

surviving. . . unfit to fight
yet continues following orders
anyway. . . in spite of &

in hopes of making the thought
of birth and death into
minimalistic routine,
habitually wasting time
while waiting for white coat
angels in training,
they are precriptors
of a dead language,
rejects of Handrwriting 101

we must never ask "why?"
to alien gods, licens'd to deduce
a reason for our woes,
who hold our heartbeats
in the palms of their ego

oh no,

we must never ask "why?".

If God didn't want us asking why, He'd've explained Himself better...gave us pain so's we'd wonder why, I think. Great poem.
