office exam

a soft quick knock
then entrance of smock and laptop
a quick greet, small talk, then
"Well, why are you here today?"

"Well Doc", I say, "I've noticed this bump."
he looks at it with three score eyes and
begins to type. "I'd say it's benign, but 
we'll check it just to be sure."
he stops briefly, looks up, and smiles

"Anything else?" he matter-of-factly says
He's done this twelve to fourteen times today,
four to six days a week, fifty weeks a year
since he started residency nearly two score ago,
he knows the part in his sleep

It's about a comfort here, 
a few choice questions there,
then write a 'script to make it better
cool the fever, banish the pain, 
make 'em feel better
- mostly about their lot in life
What else can a good doctor do?
