Had been for a consultation at an opthalmologist. Who, by chance is also a dear friend. This was the experience…..

The Good Doc

Eye drop eye drop

drop in my eyes.

Wait for some time

till you go blind.

Then, look at the bright light

piercing your eyes.

And don’t blink till he

tells you to.

Then Rest your chin

on a futuristic machine.

And stare again nonstop

at the blinking cross.

As it takes a beautiful snap

of your weakening eyesight.

Then the good doc meanwhile

gets you some tea.

And pats your back

and smiles at you.

Nothing to worry

go home and rest.

That’s his prescription

for all your pain.
