Doc Martin - Poem by Paul Gerard Reed

He's a very convincing doctor
He doesn't like to mess about
Whether you've got hepatitis
Or even a spot of gout

If only more doctors
Were just a bit like him
None of this soft soap treatment
Better for life and limb

You get no conversation or flannel
Just your ailments diagnosed
No false platitudes or small talk
Or sympathy for being indisposed

No chit chat or blether
No paying service to lip
Just a blunt summary of whats wrong
Delivered straight from the hip

This type of approach from doctors,
Whilst we may be shooting for the moon
Would greatly shorten appointment times
And save the NHS a fortune
