A Senior citizen’s lament

Thought I’d let my doctor check me,

‘cause I didn’t feel quite right;

All those aches and pains annoyed me,

and I couldn’t sleep at night.

He could find no real disorder,

but he wouldn’t let it rest;

What with Medicare and Blue Cross,

it wouldn’t hurt to do some tests.

To the hospital he sent me,

though I didn’t feel that bad;

He arranged for them to give me

every test that could be had.

I was fluoroscoped and cystoscoped,

my aging frame displayed;

stripped upon an ice-cold table

while my gizzards were x-rayed.

I was checked for worms and parasites,

for fungus and the crud;

while they pierced me with long needles,

taking samples of my blood.

Doctors came to check me over,

probed and pushed and poked around;

And to make sure I was living,

they wired me for sound.

They finally concluded.

(Their results have filled a page);

What I have will someday kill me:

My affliction is old age!
