REMINDERS

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.
