Prayer by a very new doctor

Lord, send me patients-now! today!
 So far, I haven't any. . .
They needn't all be "majors,"
 Lord, There needn't be too many.

 A tonsilectomy would do,
 One plain appendicitis,
Old Banker Brown's sciatica,
 Or Grandma Green's arthritis.

 Affairs are in a jam, 0 Lord,
 Finances. . . well, chaotic !
 Please send me, in a hurry, Lord,
 Some very rich neurotic!

 Or, lacking one nice, chronic case-
 Incurably systemic
 (The rent is due tomorrow, Lord!)
 Please send an epidemic.
