Waiting anywhere is boring, tiring, a pain in the bum
But waiting at the doctor’s is the worst, by gum!
Why is one o’clock always one-thirty or two?
Why do the receptionists glare at you?
If waiting is painful when you are healthy
(It doesn’t matter if you’re wealthy),
Waiting when you’re unwell
Sure must be hell!
Doctors, please, I know we are busy,
Sometimes racing around like crazy
But ‘patients’ is spelt witha ‘ts’,
Not a ‘ce’ as in ‘patience’.
Remember, they are people, like you.
So, give them and yourselves a break, too.
Your appointments deliberate.
But don’t keep people waiting!
Wait anywhere, any time and you’ll find
That your patience is tried
And found wanting.
Waiting sure is hell
Especially when you’re unwell.
Even if you’re healthy
And merely trying to get wealthy.
Waiting is a pain
In the bum!
A pain, I tell you,
