Why Not?

Went to Sam’s Club yesterday,
when Checking out to Our Dismay,
no more Helpful/Smiling Faces,
Self-Check Kiosks in their Places.

As Sam’s and Others move High Tech,
“Why Not” a Dud that Seems a Wreck.
My solution – do I Dare –
to Fix a System called Healthcare.

Acting as “The Idea Proctor,”
eliminate Seeing a Doctor.
No Waiting Times – Appointment Stages,
or Magazines with Curled Up Pages.

Eliminate Examinations,
Open Gowns – Operations.
Show up when it Suits you Best,
no Need to Pay plus then be Stressed.

Tear out the Rooms – the Check In Desk,
Open Space that’s less Grotesque.
Arrive whenever You darn Please,
exam Yourself in a Breeze.

Instead of People just a Machine,
treat All the Same and not Demean.
Push buttons Here and buttons There,
no Need to Strip to Underwear.

To start Things out – Chips might be Used,
attached to Organs and then Fused,
to Guts, and Brains, and surely Hearts,
perhaps Bar Codes on Private Parts?

The Bugs at First will all be Minor,
as Things progress it Will get Finer.
For those Who can’t Go out their Door,
that’s what In-Home Kits are For.
