A Pain in the Butt

I wonder what the surgeon will say…
    “I’m afraid your hip joint’s worn away”
    “There’s no cure for this situation.
     Pain can be helped by this injection”.

The needle shown on the X-ray screen
Was long enough to scratch my spleen!
Understanding the medic’s wordage:
I had bowled away the cartilage.

   “We will put you on the waiting list
   There’s extra pain from a little cyst.
   There’s only twenty four months to wait.
   No need to get in a patient state”.

So a new joint of ceramic and  steel,
Bloody particles did not appeal.
A hip socket with titanium
Viewed with limp enthusiasm.

Six weeks after the operation
A really long recuperation.
A request then, I beg,
Please no ‘pulling my leg’
