Snow before spring---
My TN before
the Tegretol.

Was watching 'House' the other day,
A bit surprised to see him work
As I found the fellow quite a jerk.
He turned to the patient, then to say,

"You must do things just my way;
From my commands you cannot shirk."
I figured it was just a quirk
Of real medicine on display.

I changed the channel then to see
A show called 'Scrubs', fully unreal.
But I had one thought, when I was through.

The first was a drama; the second free
Of all seriousness. So tell me why I feel
In drama, no one dies---in comedy, they do.
