Nip It In The Bud

I saved up for ages and I was going to have a face-lift
I was going to treat myself it was to be a sort of gift
It was when the day drew close doubts grew to suffice
I was in the doctor’s office and was put off to be precise
The thing I was most concerned about was his decor
He had art work on every wall and even on the door
They were all out of perspective and looked askew
And I had a question about them if not one or two
Until I knew the answer the treatment I would forgo
Were they sample of his work or portraits by Picasso?
