Blood Test

Professor, therapist, author and poet.






Your scores on a blood test record your state of health.
No conditions can divest no matter what their stealth.

Your scores on a riddle record your state of mind.
No conditions can fiddle no matter what their find.

Your scores on an ordeal record your state of trust.
No conditions can repeal no matter what their thrust.

Your scores on a passion record your state of heart.
No conditions can ration no matter what their part.

Your scores on an event record your state of sport.
No conditions can dissent no matter what their court.

Your scores on a ledger record your state of wealth.
No conditions can hedger no matter what their stealth.
