Doc-You-Meant-Story...... [economy; Humor...A Bit? ; Doctor/Employee; Revenge] - Poem by Bri Edwards

Doctor, you meant 10 mg, not 40, correct?
Why nurse Hayes, did you another mistake detect?
Correct it now please, as you usually do.
I just don’t know how I’d manage..... without you!

Nurse Hayes, our patient’s asleep now; time to cut.
There now, I’ve navigated around her gut.
But Doctor, it’s the LEFT kidney, not the right!
So it is Hayes. You’ve saved me quite..... a legal fight! !

[etc. etc....for years]

Doctor, I’ve worked for you now near twenty years.
The economy’s causing my family to have some fears.
It would mean so much to me to get a raise.
I remind you I’ve helped you..... in many ways.

Nurse Hayes, it’s true you’ve been the very best,
but the economy’s hurt my family with all the rest.
My daughter’s wedding gifts had to be silver, not gold, plate.
I value you highly Hayes, but a raise..... will have to wait.

[10 months later..... still no raise]

Nurse Hayes, in your absence I erred in a big case,
and now a malpractice suit I surely will face.
I’m sorry Doctor. I seem to have allowed your insurance to lapse.
Upon this news, the Doctor clutched at his chest..... and did collapse.

[penny wise and pound foolish! ]
