I (Pastor Tim) was having some health issues so I invited Cybersalt Digest Subscribers to lighten things up by writing a poem, haiku, or limerick with the words diverticulitis, CT scan, and antibiotics in it.
Here are the submissions in the order they were received!
The Maladies of Pastor Tim
Diverticulitis? Antibiotics? A CT scan? Is this right? Could this be the plan?
I think Tim has a hangnail, a boil, and a really ugly zit. Much easier to rhyme so this must be it—a new diagnosis if the doctor permits.

I hate when I don't feel well
It hurts right to the soul.
I'm one of God's children
Therefore I should be whole.
But alas I am mistaken
And so, our Lord must right us.
We can't always be one hundred percent;
So the doctor wants a CT scan.
Hope it's not a mistake.
But I can't tell, until I'm feeling well.
So, these xxx antibiotics I'll take.
- Jean B
I wasn't feeling well one day,
So I called my Dr up.
He said I'll order a CT scan,
and see what's in your gut.
It's diverticulitis he said,
as his eyes looked towards the sky.
I believe an antibiotic will do
with lots of prayers thrown in.
I'll see you back in three more weeks
If I don't see you before.
There was a Tim without a beard, who said, 'It is just as I feared!
Bad digestion, CT scans and antibiotic, make my life totally chaotic.

Is something that doesn't excite us
Using a CT scan
The doc said this is your problem my man
Now antibiotics will hopefully right us
