Incompetent Necessities #PoetTues 6/6

I hope to post a new poem on my site every week. Having a schedule should help keep me on track.

Incompetent Necessities


Dear Doctor,

You lose my lab order

Give no refill though I ask

Five times over

Then say I should avoid stress

That it’s bad for my health


Dear Pharmacy,

You maim my insurance

And short my medication

Half a month at double charge

Then say I look tired

That I need more rest


My relationship

With you both

Is exhausting

It’s toxic

But I’ll die if I walk away
