Terminal Diagnosis

They told him that the test was positive


and so he feared it was...


terminal.
That night in bed beside his wife


he dreamed that all his friends


had gathered in formal garb


around his coffin.


Then he dreamed of a terrible skull shape


followed by a crowd of faceless ghosts!


He saw himself alone in the shadows...


The next day after studying the X-rays

they told him there was no immediate cause for concern.


At once he felt renewed


quit his job at the office


and joined the circus!
