Good Doctors Come in Second Place (revision)

There's nothing so unhumorous
as bone bits that aren't knittin' well,
unless it's far too numerous
light verses that aren't written well.

Still, none are sad or dirgery.
Not one has any hate in it.
So, speed thy bone to surgery
and let 'em stick a plate in it!

And me? I'm hardly reticent
to scribble from a fecund place,
but this is an anomaly:
I fall back on the homily
that laugher's the best medicine,
good doctors come in second place.

This is fun, funny, and true. Love this line:

... laughter's the best medicine,
good doctors come in second place.
