Medication

A distraught senior citizen 

phoned her doctor's office. 

'Is it true,' she wanted to know, 

'that the medication 

you prescribed has to be taken 

for the rest of my life? ' 

'Yes, I'm afraid so,' the doctor told her . 



There was a moment of silence 

before the senior lady replied, 

'I'm wondering, then, 

just how serious is my condition 

because this prescription is marked 

'NO REFILLS'.'
