The shoe store sends little cards that say:
“Your child saw us last three months ago.
Growing feet need regular attention.”
And the dentist says:
“Your last checkup was six months ago.
Will you call for an appointment?”
But doctors don’t do this. And why not?
“We haven’t heard from you since we discovered
That awful thing two years ago.
“Are you bashful? Are you alive?
Please call us soon
And we’ll try to squeeze you in.”



  1. So the patient calls the doctor’s office and gets the automated system:
           &nbspPlease listen carefully, as the menu options have changed.
            If U are alive, press 1.
            If U are dead, press 2.

    1. Oops — missing semicolon after “&nbsp” in 1st list quoted from automated system.
