Alternate Author Name(s): Father Tabb
Subject(s): Appendicitis

Alas! what shall I do?
I have lost my nearest friend;
He tender was and true
And faithful to the end.

In sunshine and in shade
He closer stuck to me
Than handle to a blade,
Or wax unto a bee.

But he'll not come again,
Nor know what I'm about,
For when he gave me pain,
The doctor cut him out.

And sad it is to me
That I can never tell
If my appendix be
In heaven or in hell.
