The White

The doctors all wear white coats.
And white pants. And white shoes.
And white top hats.
They carry white gloves and canes.
And they dance down the halls of the hospital ward.
The nurses dance with them, as they go from patient to patient.
The white sheets. The white walls. The white floors.
Everything is white and fresh and clean.
What’s that? A spot of red?
Blood? BLOOD?
Call for the janitor! And his mops! And pails!
He is not wearing white!
Look away! Look away!
Scrub away the red!
It’s gone?
All is white again… and the dance begins!
