Again, The Phishing, Just Like Times Before

Tarnished excavation site
digging graves with expectations
– no bodies buried there –

Privilege applies
– citing doctor & clergy ramifications –
drugged & dragged down empty corridors
over broken glass & Hell’s pits of fire

The Devil held the wheel ‘til arrival in New Orleans,
roads without access & near-death experience
The heading steady, driving Northward-bound
– the Heart screams “turn around”
“Go back, go back – home is where you’re to be found”

Stable, soon able, took a cab to Longwood
and the hospitable Hospital then located there
– the food good as the best cuisine –
patient & staff sharing the same cafeteria
– treated as a human being in desperate need of doctoring –

But no matter how blessed, I can only guess,
the wisdom of my latest trip & fall
– what I’ll call –
‘The Lake Wales Experience’
