Tunnel vision does apply
When someone’s really sick.
Just try to change the topic –
Nothing else, you’ll find, will stick.
Prepare to hear a litany
Of symptoms and of cures,
While thinking all the while you’re glad
Those problems aren’t yours.
Of course, you’re sympathetic
To another’s aggravation,
But sometimes you’re bombarded with
Just too much information.
You listen and you nod your head,
Relieved when you must go
And pray that you will never share
Your own account of woe.
