The Letter (with apologies to the Bard)

With dread anticipation,
I seize upon the letter.
Am I soon
to shuffle off my mortal coil?
I think of graves and worms and epitaphs
and how to tell the family.

But no!
It states:
‘All clear!
You lie within the acceptable range.
You’re normal.
You will not need to drain
our slim resources further.
You’re nothing special at all.
