Fiona was a girl who always finished last
That is how she got her leg in a cast.

Lee Lee was a girl who always finished first
That is how she got this unquenchable thirst.

“Why are you in here?” Asks Lee Lee the snob
Fiona replies, “A bus ran me over; got squashed to a blob.”

“Eew,” Says Lee Lee as she gets injected by a nurse
Who secures the IV and turns on the curse.

“Why are you here?” Questions Fiona the loser
“I played too hard in softball, over in Bruiser.”

“Oh,” says Fiona as she tries to wiggle her toes looser.
It is silent as the nurse finishes her maneuver.

“Am I going to die?” Lee Lee asks Nurse Tammy.
“No, honey, you’re just dehydrated; thats why you feel so clammy.”

When Nurse Tammy leaves and closes the curtain door
Fiona whispers, “I’ve been here before.”

“Me too,” says Lee Lee as she stares at the tube,
Courtney Love is on, looking like Hitler with boobs.

“I had a dream about this,” Lee Lee adds.
“Not me,” says Fiona, “I was here when my dad lost his nads.”

Lee Lee looks at Fiona the nerd.
“I really hope you’re kidding,” the queen-bee purred.

Fiona shrugged and winced from the pain
Her leg nerves traveled to her arm; she’ll have to complain.

Lee Lee’s mouth got dry and she couldn’t swallow
Panicking, she believed she wouldn’t live ’till tomorrow.

“I think I’m going to take a nap,”
Fiona says as she feels a bad cramp.

“Me too,” says Lee Lee and drifts away
Sunshiney day, hooray, hooray.

The fluorescent lamp behind both beds buzz
As a clock on the wall ticks out what time it was.

On TV, the program switched to the news
There was coverage of Fiona getting hit, along with sports headline- Lee Lee McHue.

An angel floated down from Heaven above
And marked both girls with an X, which meant Love.

Her silky white gown blankets the ER room
As her energy heals the patients’ deepest wounds.

Off in an instant and gone in a flash,
The angel lady cured the nastiest gash.

Fiona’s bones cracked back together
And Lee Lee’s thirst was quenched forever.

Lee Lee wakes up in her bed back at home
And looks at her clock, to see how far time roamed.

Fiona wakes in a hospital chair
As her dad recovers from emergency castration repair.

The next day at school the girls smiled and talked
When asked ‘Why?’ they said:
“Because we’re not dead.”
