You Are Much Too Eager To Get Naked - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Have you ever been anywhere,
To strip yourself bare of anything to conceal.
To then be asked,
'What are you hiding?
You are much too eager to get naked.

Do you mind if we XRAY you?
And 'then' do an MRI?
Perform a magnetic resonance imaging?

We are especially interested,
In the functioning of your brain...
And how it is connecting to the rest of you.'
