Waiting to Get Help

No wonder people are going round the bend,

When one sits in silence on the phone, for time on end.

I wonder if the doctor,  himself is on the mend.

Are they sadists, callously culling the old and the sick?

Put down early, like a dog,  for my final rest.

Survival of the fittest, could be a test,

Why don’t they answer, removing stress from my chest?
