What type of patient?

The compliant, the impatient

Or patient researcher

Who searches for answers

To the pay and pain dilemma

That overwhelms

 

The compliant believes

Everything medical is the cure

They search for answers

Under the guise of an angel

Dressed as human

To return to top of the triangle

 

The impatient conceives

That time has come to make

Disguised devils demanded on their deeds

With an eye on suspicion

He listens, discredits, then verifies

If all ends well

Devils turn into angels

 

The researches counts

The steps that every white coated

Human does, with info in hand

Before or after, rest assured

What is being done is what was said

Then lends himself to the hand

That would deal in destiny’s end.

 

The patient caught in limbo

Trained young to believe

Every word that comes out is a symbol

Of what professionals can achieve

Two humans caught in a trap of trust

Pain and hope, angel and devil, saved or tossed
