A doctor has some bad news.

The Diagnosis of 'Poet'

Please sit down, the test results are back in.

And do make sure you're sitting.

I know I said things were looking good,

and that you would be a programmer

with a good middle class job.

It seems as if those symptoms

of running off to the library during class

to read history books and

poems have gotten worse

and we will now need a new course of treatment.

You must stop writing verses in class

you must not daydream while

boring men entitled to your time

go on and on.

You must not fantasize leaving

quarantine to go to the 1920s with your dog.

Write your papers and

find a good middle class job

where you may get an hour a

night to write, but you must

listen to the boring man, entitled to your time, instead.

That, we medical professionals believe

will cure you of being a

poet.
