Candy in Right Places

Hospitals are boring places
where people come to buy
a few more years for themselves.
And sometimes they even succeed.

I would not be surprised
if this doctor whom my girl finds sexy
who is supposed to operate on my kidney
asks my girl friend out for a cup of coffee,
as my body fights to regain consciousness
in the hospital bed after this critical operation.

Everyone needs to relax after all.
Love is beautiful if you can get
the candy in right places.
