Lawrence S. Pertillar
Down to the Bone
Shouldn't the patient be given an anesthetic?
Something to ease the pain,
And provide comfort during this procedure?
If there is any pain felt...
They will know that soon enough,
When I prepare the bill.
And this one will leave them in shock,
For the rest of their lives.
I'll prescribe something...
That will keep them coming back again.
There are too many vacations my family and I
Desire to take.
And I have clubhouse fees that are essential,
To keep paid.
And if I don't receive my fee in a timely fashion...
I am the one who bares the brunt end of the suffering!
Hand me the buzz saw, please!
I need to get down to the bone.'
