Check-up with Lord's Clinic

When I went to the Lord's Clinic for a check-up,
I confirmed that I have high blood pressure
Because I was low in tenderness and my temperature was
40◦ of anxiety, my arteries were blocked with loneliness
I have an empty heart that needed several 'love bypasses'.
I went to Orthopaedics that I could not walk with others
Since I had fractured myself when tripping with envy
He also found I was short sighted because I could not see
Beyond the shortcomings of my brothers and sisters;
I also have the problem of deafness
Because I stopped listening the God's words
That he was talking to me on a daily basis.
God gave me a free consultation, thanks to his mercifulness
He prescribed me with words 'take only natural remedies'.
Every morning, take a full glass of gratitude,
When getting to work, take one spoon of peace,
Every hour take one pill of patience,
A glass full of humility and a cup full of brotherhood.
When getting home, take one dose of love,
When getting to bed, two caplets of clear conscience.
