Recipient

by David Andrés Alíx

Recipient

There was a man

In need of

A heart transplant

No matter the times

He applied

His candidacy 

Was always rejected

His risk factors 

Were too many

Do you smoke?

Yes

Do you exercise?

No

What is your diet?

Cake and Ice Cream

So he never made the 

List

But he knew even better

Than the Doctors

How urgently he needed 

A new heart

So he lost weight

stopped smoking

Started the elliptical

And his wait

Was shortened 

He was put 

At the top of the

Eligible Recipient List

And he has hope

While he also hopes

It’s not too late
