…though I take care of adults, I adore the tinier guests. 🙂
Some people call this a hospital.
I like to call this a place of my P’s.
A hidden treasure
in a downtown peach orchard
where all my P’s roam.
But don’t panic.

pain is palliated,
and papillae are poked.
Patients are pacified,
parking is pitiful,
penlights are peddled,
and parolees panto.
I just call this home.
