Symptomologists care for the whethers depending on the weather.
They’ve formed a focus-group lobbyist consortium in Washington and next week they march.
They march for high blood pressure;
high cholesterol too.
They fight for frequent urination
and salivalicious goo.
They fund grants for cracked skin

They defend cricks and creaks
and formica beef stew.

Now there is a symptom worthy of attention:
A weeping so woeful, it shames the bright sun.
