The psychologically sick

The easily cured by the broadest of smiles Of a cancer gone gross miles, To life gingerly bouncing back And beginning to not a lack! The speedily healed by jocular doctors, Worsening worries from one who hectors: The time the keys to his coffin start jangling, He between Heaven and Hell dangling! The Hit-With-A-Spiteful-Elbow Who soon recovers with a placebo: The suspended-from-ground mistletoe, Or several winks after stepping on her toe. Yes, to whom it is excellent news, That you’ve just paid for her juice.
