Just Got My Bill

Just got my bill,
From my bad spill.
For five days,
In the hospital.

Just got my bill,
For surgeon’s skill.
He fixed me with,
A plate of steel.

Just got my bill,
For every pill.
For all the pain,
They helped to kill.

Just got my bill,
And what a thrill.
I live in Sweden,
So it’s no big deal.

(Ambulance, intravenous morphine, ER care, CT scan, x-rays, reconstructive surgery, ultrasound, four nights round-the-clock care in the orthopedic unit, oxycontin and morphine tablets, and three meals a day, = ~$118)
