Poor Sam


Paul Curtis

Sam went to the Doctors
With every ache and pain
And with every sniff and sniffle
He would go again and again
If he had a simple heat rash
He thought he had meningitis
If he had a bad case of wind
He thought he had appendicitis
The doctor tried him on placebos
Giving Sam pots of sugar pills
But despite the docs best efforts
Sam returned with non-existent ills
The doctor tried to be patient
But one day when Sam came back
The doctor gave him the bad news
“I must tell you you’re a hypochondriac”
Sam became all hot and bothered
And created a right old fuss
Then when he calmed down he asked
“What’s a hypochondriac? Is it serious?”
