The medical centre, Todmorden:
You ring to get an appointment,
Petrhaps you need some ointment,
All appointments are taken.
I wish receptionists could tell,
if you are fit and well,
You may never get to see a doctor,
But maybe you need to ought to.
The service is unsatisfactory,
Receptionists regard it as tactfully.
