Blood Test



Sitting in the doctors waiting room,

A poster about preparing for your funeral.

Fancy putting that up!

Wondering what to put in the coffin.

His palette, and his favourite brush of course,

A tube of titanium white,

Always using that.

Although there might be lots of paint in heaven.

For her, a nice bit of velvet,

Soft and comforting.

The bell rang for the next patient,

She rose to answer it.

Going to have the blood test

That would change her life.
