A doctor can cure people’s ills
By prescribing lotions and pills
Cannot get an appointment -
Dad needs hemorrhoid ointment
Eyes water, poor dad needs no thrills!

Find medics to help him real quick
Great bulging piles get on his wick
He needs his treatment today
I will assist him to pay
Joins BUPA; they’ll treat when you’re sick!

LOL Even with the "alphabet" rule, your humor shines, Jan. Poor Dad! I have an old one, "A Brush with Horror," on hemorrhoid cream. Still, for those who have hemorrhoids, it's no laughing matter. Great entry, Jan!
