Finding Out You’re NPO


When you find out you’re NPO,

And you’re as hungry and thirsty as can be,

There’s nothing you can do,

As you will quickly see.

You just have to wait it out,

Until the time is done.

Then to your relief,

When you ask, the food and cola will come.

It tastes so good when you get it,

You eat it very fast,

For fear you will turn around,

And find the dream has passed.

Much to your surprise,

When you turn, some food is still there.

Then you realize,

There never was a dream anywhere.

So you spend the rest of the day,

Feeling really really good,

Knowing the NPO is over,

And you can finally have cola and food.
