Get, Got, Gotten.


He's nervous,
he has second thoughts.
The doctor says he has
nothing to worry about.
Which means he has
everything to worry about.
He starts trembling and shaking,
Which is the last thing they need
Because blood doesn't clean easily.
The doctor says,
“The drugs should kick in soon,”
Which means the drugs
will never kick in.
He starts thinking
about all the bad he's done.
He feels guilty, really guilty.
He starts to pray, but he's too nervous to finish.

The drugs still haven't kicked in yet,

But fear has,
and now he's petrified.
He wants his mommy.
His wife asked
if she could sit with him.
His boys asked also,
but he refused.
He really wants his mommy.
The doctor grabs his tool and starts working.
Now he's terrified.
He starts squirming.

The drugs still haven't kicked in yet.

“Narrator, do something,” he says.
So I say, “Doctor, Please,
I don't think that arm goes in there.”

This is the best poem I've read this month. I didn't get it at first, but half-way through I realized what you meant.

Finally!!! Something that makes sense and is good. I appreciate this poem very much because it is humorous and many people would know how hard humor is to come by on this site. At first, I thought you were just a fanatic for things that didn't make sense or relate to each other in any way but this just changed that.

It's funny. I totally don't like really sad books but all the novels that I think of writing all have the main character dying in the end. Somehow it doesn't feel as sad when it's your own story. :) 

Nice job. I enjoyed reading this. And again, reminded me of House because of the doctor stuff. You should seriously think of watching that show more often.

yes ofcourse! Would you mind if I ask a question? Why do you address everyone as captain? Is there any specific reason or is it just a way of showing respect?
