In the Waiting Room

Exquisite décor
comfortable chairs

Already you know the doctor will be late

A leathery old lady
looks furtively about her

Then, as if time were not an issue
and co-pays didn’t break the bank

She swipes the subscription card
out of National Geographic

That long term plan is a steal

and she looks too frugal
to leave a single issue unread.
