SONNET DARE: In Which I Call Out The Cholecyst On A Good Friend's Behalf

"Choleric" could describe Netta Ribken:
Of late our girl has been on quite a roll
As she cranks out her novel. Then again
Her temper she has kept under control.
Yet all that passion had to go somewhere
The gallbladder is where that tends to go
(At least per Great Hippocrates). Unfair,
I say it is! Now, what took place next, though:
(Besides the ambulance and surgery
And stay in hospital) was a near-brawl
Twixt Netta and, there in endoscopy,
A doctor -- that, I cannot help but call
Hilarious! As I've been there as well,
How glad I am that Netta gave 'em hell!

  1. OMG. Effing awesome. I'm so touched.

    Thank you, o most wondrous of sonneteers. You are the BEST.

    There once was a poet named Kate
    Who wordsmithing was truly great.
    Her ability to express
    An endoscopy's duress
    Into humor is honestly her fate.

    (bad, but I'm on drugs. Heh.)

    Thankee-sai, my lovely.
