Is the Doctor in?
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Michael P. Johnson

††† Is the doctor in?

ďPlease; can I see the doctor now?

Or is he out on call?

My heart hurt so, I donít know how

Last night I came to fall

Allow me to the doctor please

I know thereís such a queue

Itís hard for me to bend my knees

I donít know what to do

Iíve never been to him before

Iím feeling rather dumb

I saw the sign upon your door

And thought that I should come

They say Iíve nothing here to pay

He does it all quite free

I have so many debts today

But thatís not strange for me

Iím sick of searching all around

Iím sick of creams and pills

I hope this Christ; that now Iíve found

Can cure all my ills

They say that heís extremely good

He makes the blind to see

But that His patients wash in blood

Sounds awfully strange to me

The other doctor down the street

Has queues both night and day

On all accounts heís such a cheat

At least Iíve heard them say

But Jesus healed my neighbourís boy

Born dumb with limbs quite lame

He now can walk, now sings with joy

I hope Iím healed the sameĒ......

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
