That’s What You Needed Is Another Hole In Your Head - Poem by Joe Rosochacki

An Ukrainian woman, Marian Dolishney,
Had been operated for free by the British neurosurgeon, Dr. Henry Marsh.
Dr. Marsh does biannual visits to the Ukraine and other Eastern European countries,
To help heal people that he would see.
Among the tools of his trade, a Bosch 9.6 volt electric drill,
(Is there a Lowe’s around? Well I heard you can get a rebate, still.)
Anyway, the Bosch was used for tumor removal in Marian's brain.

Isn’t this insane?
What is going on here,
super glue the bleeding,
solder the neurons,
Or simply get the rotor rooter for an obstructed bowel?
Yikes that would be painful.
You may have thought so,
But she on had topical anesthetic nothing major.
First there will be medical clinics at Wal-Mart,
Next there will be surgical supplies at Home Depot.
