I See You - Poem by Mathew Thomas

On the hospital bed,
In the I SEE YOU,
Where no one could see,
Doctors whispered,
We shall see.

In the I SEE YOU
Friends and parents came to see,
But we couldn't see,
Only doctors could see,
I was on a ventilator.

Is he fine in the I SEE YOU,
The doctors said, Can't you see?
The monitor in luminescent green,
And hear the beeps from within,
Have you paid the forty grand?

Can't you see in the I SEE YOU,
Nurses pumping the air balloon,
The blip on the monitor screen,
Already flat in luminescent green,
And asked again, have you paid forty grand?

Poet's Notes about The Poem

The doctors profession in India, has become a big money spinner these days. The doctors themselves forget the Hippocrates oath and in the bargain tend to fleece patients by using gullible methods.However there are some very dedicated doctors in India. Most of the fleecing that is happening is with corporate and private hospitals.
