– asclepius –

As-cle-pius,
heal me with your staff,
but if you could, please
leave any snakes out.
As-cle-pius,
strike me in my path…
if it truly means a
healthy new route.
~
Summon all your daughters at the
altar tonight,
just so I can become well a-
gain… and
I’ll put forth my gratitude, no
attitude tonight,
all for your dear medi-
cine.
