Extortion and Robbery on My Hospital Visit

Off today for a 6. A.M appointment for an MRI
small consolation at least there was no radioactive dye
strapped in like a self harmer at a psychiatric institute
a cruel bar on my chin made me mute
this procedure can be a real brute
my parking ticket says thanks for supporting research dreamt up in the hospital marketing department by a suit!

$14.45 for less than an hour
the extortion and robbery made my wallet take a scour
rather leaves one in a victim mode
like a helpless toad
