One more go for the toe

The doctor believes
this is the last time
that he’ll have to treat
this toe wart of mine.

He used “Beatlejuice”
and bandaged it up.
I asked if it’d hurt
and he answered, “Yup.”

I left the office
and headed on home,
for with a bad toe
one simply can’t roam.

I hope this is it
that it’s finally dead,
for this toe’s become
a thing that I dread.
