Poem of the Week-Imbedded

Thought it was a stye

              Flushing at Urgent Care

              Refused to loosen

              The speck

              Buried in my lower eye-lid

              A scratchy pain

              Until the doctor extracted

              The foreign object

              But the remaining piece

              Was stubborn

Imbedded in my lid

Flipping off the piece

              Numbing the eye

              The tool to remove

              Failed

              Almost subjected to ER

              Risk of the leftover

              Scratching my cornea

              But the stars aligned

              And I was sent home

              With drops and ointment

              Until I saw my

              Ophthalmologist

              On Monday

Oh Happy Day
