You Don'T Want To Know - Poem by vince gullaci

I was worried
was it cancer?
A huge vein protruded
an angry welt
thicker than a finger
braided my behind
over the next few days
it settled down
Thank God
for hemorrhoids
I thought
until the doctor explained
it was common
in hairy Europeans
just an in grown hair.

    My dad thought the same thing many years ago.
    Hemorrhoids sound pretty good after that scare!
