Waiting to see a Doctor

I once went to the office late
I was told I shouldn’t wait

So now I get there a half hour before
Knowing I won’t be asked for the door

Once I waited an hour and a half
Only to find me urging me to laugh

Finally I was called inside
With a nurse whose questions were plied

The nurse had gone and another had come
Looking at papers to see what was to be done

Then another nurse quickly came in
Checking my heart, pulse, nose and chin

Finally what to my surprise the Doctor did arrive
After the hour and a half, I did survive

He ask a few questions and quickly disappeared
Soon a nurse was back as I feared

I was given a new appointment date
After spending a two hour wait

Waiting to see a Doctor was absurd
The time it took caused my voice to be heard
