Heart rate in the minor key
brain-waves in the operating room
doctor’s without faces
no gloves
burnt hands
proceed to incision
skin peels like fresh lemons
cold touch of scalpel to the skin
transplant of the unethical
violations of Medicare
fiscal infection
keep the penicillin coming
oxygen related hallucinations
surgical team all unconscious
submission to the hidden Rx
get your coma in a pill
heart beat at the minimum
revival using electrical chair
Dr.’s orders
go ahead and swallow your heart
death due to emergency room
close your eyes
as the nurses stitch you up
