Daily Prompt: Continue

Ever been to a shrink?

One asking you to think

What could be the matter

Are you the Hatter?

Certainly not, you utter

His words come like butter,

Go on, continue

As he looks out the window

You wonder as his eyes start to glisten

If he even cares to listen

You pour out your heart, hoping to heal

While he basically ignores how you feel

The whole medical doctor psychologist thing

Isn’t for me, no confidence in them does it bring

They pretend to listen, to care

While at their computer they stare

I think getting their medical college degrees

That are compensated by huge office fees

Should offer a course on how to please

Not just focus on finding disease

There’s something to be said for “bedside manner”

That answers you give really do matter.
