On Wednesday at the Y
a man was walking on the track
when suddenly he stopped,
sat down, and slumped over.
He was taken away on a stretcher.
On Thursday a man stayed in the sauna
so long he couldn't get up.
As one of the passersby put it,
He cooked hisself like a rotisserie chicken.
He, too, was taken away on a stretcher.
Good thing the Y shares the parking lot
with the hospital, a woman said.
They even have a helicopter pad
in case you need to be life-flighted to Cleveland.
Yep, another woman piped up.
We could use a funeral parlor on the other side.
You heard about the man who was sitting
in the chair in the workout room?
He was there a few hours
before anyone realized he was dead.
