In an American hospital people were always dying in the same bed.

On Sunday morning regardless of their medical  condition they were found dead.

This puzzled the doctors and produced quite a scare.

It happened in the intensive care unit,recovery was rare.

The unexplained deaths occurred around 9 o'clock,

A worldwide team of experts were called in to observe round the clock.

On Sunday morning all the experts assembled round the bed,

As the clock struck 9 in walked the Sunday cleaner Mildred.

Mildred was very laid back and a bit of a dreamer,

She unplugged the life support machine and plugged in the vacuum cleaner.

Hilarious as usual! Have friend intensive care medico and last week she had a patient who answered 'miaow' every time they asked him anything!!!!! He got more attention than any of the others. Shouldn't laugh about it, but rather like your poem.
