Doctor Please


A patient has something to say, she's sick and dieing and this is what she says to him, to her doctor.

Doctor please,
Please, don’t save my soul,
Save my body and nothing else,
No sense to the world
Do this one favor to me
Dear doctor please,
Hold me close
Keep the harsh chill from my bones
Save me from the mental ward
Let the maternal be close
Just, doctor please,
Just don’t save my soul
They’ve served me fish
The forbidden was all mine
Grow my body to a healthy state
All through the night,
Make sure that I am kept warm
Just, doctor please don’t save my soul.
I’ll take a hundred dozen morphine pills
My child will cry for years at your door
So please, doctor
Just shut the door
Don’t look into my eyes
No speaking of life
Touch the flesh and not the soul
Never do I feel the pain
Just don’t save my soul
Doctor, please
Just cut me open
Lick the blood from your shiny scalpel
Smile and for a second know
Doctor you’ll never change me.

Poem of the Day

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
