Hurt - so to save you from any more harm
A syringe full of poison pumped into your arm.
"That couldn't happen in our world today"
Is what I hear you start to say.
But it can and does and always will
Make the trivially poorly seriously ill.
For when you're out cold, they cannot ask
If what they're doing hinders their task.
How can they tell? How could they know?
Perhaps if there was a sign to show?
No knowing about your little allergy
Could cause for you a larger tragedy.

Ian W Halliday (b. 1961)
