Nursing School: A Poem

I wrote this for Alister but figured I'd share it here...b/c it's typical me.

I hate to study
Yes I do
I hate to study
And I know you do too.

My books are heavy
My notes are boring
If I read much longer
I'll end up snoring.

Clinical write-ups
Case studies and tests
Quizzes and check offs
I just want to rest!

Smegma and mucus
Discharge you can see
What was I thinking
To want this degree?

Vaginas and babies
IV’s and chest tubes
And if you do a rectal
Don’t forget lots of lube.

Angina and stroke
Diabetes and COPD
That’s a lot of sick people
That I have to see.

TB and pneumonia
MRSA and staph
Scrub your hands hard
Then go take a hot bath.

Vomit and blood
Penises and sores
You never know
What’s behind hospital doors.

Patients that yell
Kids that will bite
Demented grandmas
That wander out of sight.

Charting and charting
I have to look forward to
And funky fluids
Spilling on my nice shoes.

Let’s be honest
It's not really my thing
But I'm doing it anyways
So I can afford all my bling.
