I know the things you say of me:  you wish that I’d drop dead.
You think I am unfeeling; well, I’ll have you know I dread
The day that you may go, before your treatment is complete
The day your empty pocketbook will leave you on the street.
I hope you’ve paid your premiums, or at least made out your wills.
I’ll heal your battered bodies if you can pay my bills.

There was a time I didn’t plan to charge so high a fee,
When I had youthful principles, and thought to heal for free.
But I had loans to pay off, and the payments weren’t small.
I know you think I’m greedy, for I’ve long since paid them all.
But you don’t know my med school and the values it instills.
I’ll heal your battered bodies   and you will pay my bills.
