Country Doctor

A doctor for decades,
he provides services 
not available nearby.

Clients drive miles
from farms and towns
seeking his care.

He is always busy, 
assisted by two nurses 
six days a week.

He loves animals
and feeds tramp dogs 
and feral cats daily

in the open field
behind his office.
If he sees a bug

in his office 
everything stops 
while he carries it outside.

Only then does he return
and relieve another client
of her fetus.
