My blood just turned into jello
as I went to the hospital for tests,
no words can describe the anxiety
that pestered me that day …
Though I know I should not fear,
there’s nothing I can do
when the time for the blood test comes
I turn into a pavid fool!
The nurse deftly stuck the needle
into my willing puffed-up vein …
Ouch! came from me istinctively
to my mouth with a pucker of pain.
She grabbed some cottonwool,
then taped the fluff onto my wound,
telling me I could have my morning meal,
although it was way past ten.
