Under the weather.

Lying here between hospital scented sheets

With glazed eyes watching as

The needle is flicked

With arm outstretched

A vein is sought

Jocosely the nurse says

Turn your head slightly to one side

While I probe

Too ill to quibble I oblige

Following a little sting

She says

That’s it until the afternoon

Breakfast will be here shortly.
