happy nurses day

Bedpans and call lights, contagious pneumonias
IV's and bandaids and huge hematomas
nine feet of packing all covered with green,
these are a few of your favorite things.

wheezing and sneezingsand coughing up phlegm balls
slipping on vomit expelled into the halls
sputum that glistens when blown out in strings,
these are a few of your favorite things

hepatitis, phlebitis, fractures of the head,
your nurses will care for our every need
while we are laid bed.

we won't be quiet
we sing your praises
thank you for all that you do !
