The Doctor

I went to the doctor. He x-rayed my head.

He stared for a moment and here’s what he said.

“It looks like you’ve got a banana in there,

an apple, an orange, a peach, and a pear.

I see a Turtle and even a baby Bear.

Wow, there are even Diamonds in there.

How did you get them? They are so rare

With all of the junk that you have in your head

It’s kind of amazing you got out of bed.

The good news, at least, is you shouldn’t feel pain.

From what I can see here you don’t have a brain.”

This was a list poem based on Kenn Nesbit’s “That Explains It!”
