Mammogram

_____________________________________

Well, I am a woman and I have two breasts

Which at my age require regular tests.

To the office for an examination

It’s the first time and a whole new sensation

Lifting, placing, pressing, squashing but no pain

What to expect next nurse kindly explained

I don’t know what all the hubbub is about

It’s surely better than the alternate route.
