Alternate Author Name(s): Filsinger, Ernest B., Mrs.
Subject(s): Physicians; Sickness; Doctors; Illness

EVERY night I lie awake
And every day I lie abed
And hear the doctors, Pain and Death,
Conferring at my head.

They speak in scientific tones,
Professional and low--
One argues for a speedy cure,
The other, sure and slow.

To one so humble as myself
It should be matter for some pride
To have such noted fellows here,
Conferring at my side.
