The Scarborough General Hospıtal


The Scarborough General Hospital saved my life at least three times,
The doctors, the nurses and the Ontario Health Care worked fine,
But then I saw pages and pages of reasons they wanted to change,
If it worked fine for me and did for years so why rearrange?

Please don’t make any changes to that great hospital place,
I would like the same medical people to stay there just in case,
They saved my life several times before so I already know,
They might save my life again once more like they did long ago.

The Scarborough General Hospital is probably where I will die,
But I hope death-with-dignity is in by then, before I say bye bye,
And it’s within walking distance so I hope I can still walk there,
If the hospital stays as it is; there’s no need for despair.

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
