    Doctor Spineless should be his name
    Lacking guts
    Unable to look me in the eye
    Or perhaps he knew
    The news would make me cry

    His letter came on this, an almost perfect day
    My heart sank into the pit of my stomach
    When reading the words he had to say

    Why me?
    Why me?
    I ask for so little
    Why must this be my torturous fate?
    Why now when things are going so great?

    Gazing at the letter in total disbelief
    Hoping the words would somehow change
    Say something different
    Something I wanted to hear
    The first tear came
    As I slumped in a chair

    A death sentence
    That’s just what it is
    Doctors
    What the hell do they know?
    To me it’s just a minor condition
    Easily treated with medication

    He can’t be right
    This expert in his field
    I’ve read his words a thousand times
    They were the words of a professional
    Professionally written

    They were not the words of one who understands
    Not the words of anyone who knows me
    They were not the words of a friend
    He don’t know what he did when he wrote the words…
    “I strongly advise you
    never to ride a rollercoaster again”
