Who see me as a caricature
so quick in their criticism
using flash cards for diagnosis.
They pretend to understand me
never having known poverty
forgetting I can hardly walk.
How convenient to cuddle up.
Compliment my beauty.
You really need glasses, Doctor.
So unimaginative…thinking of
themselves, believing every one
is a healthy rich, white man.
Poor communicators. Refusing
to listen, won’t study up.
Can’t use the brains you were born with.
Feel sorry for yourselves. How hard
is it to lift a prescription pad?
And your underlings, nurses, nitwits
who kowtow to you and want us
patients to salute in total obedience.
Who is paying your salaries? And who
wants to play medical mafia roulette
with a bunch of creeps like you?
