I had one of those surreal moments this morning; must be my age.

Strange medicine

I sheepishly entered
The pharmacy,
And asked the chemist
In a quiet, confessional
Voice if she could give me
Anything for male thrush,
And she whispered to me
That she had the very thing,
And she took a box from
Underneath the counter
And handed me...
A female thrush.
