I am not good with needles.
Sorry. I mean to say
“I am not good with you
sticking those things into my arm
so insensitively and frequently.”
When I started giving blood,
my veins were perfect
and every few weeks
some seeming professional
was able to eke out some of the lifestuff
from my system
as I donated to the Red Cross.
I’ve gotten out of practice giving
but you need a lot of practice taking.
You’re not very good at inserting the needle
is what I’m saying.
Could you find some experienced staff
to help us out?
How is it
that you’re the manager of this place?
Is there a way
maybe you could authorize
sticking yourself instead?
