The drum n bass

Of the medical world

An interruption of

Old computer games

Pow Pow Pow

Zum Zum Zum

Di Di Di Di Di

Button bashing

Kick a box

Vibrations tugging

And I lie still

Struggling to breathe

Chest crushed

Cold flushed

In a superwoman pose

One arm out flying

My hospital cape

Soft around my face

Face down

Struggling to breathe

And keep still

So still in this racket.

    1. Hi menstonvillagewharfedale! It is not such a bad experience, lying still for 20 minutes. My results were ok thanks. It feels good to know you are being thoroughly examined which gives some peace of mind. I hope you don’t find it too stressful. Maybe take a cd with you, they usually offer to play music instead of listening to the machine. I personally don’t mind it, as you can see from above 🙂 All the best to you x
