Things Aren'T Always As They Seem To Be. - Poem by chris dawson

Two medic students dwelt one day

observing new admissions

and visually assessed each walk

then mused upon conditions

'A slipped disc' came a knowing nod

'I'm afraid I beg to differ,

Haemorrhoids I'm sure it is,

a slipped disc walk is stiffer'

Keen to settle their dispute

they approached the man with care,

for he had a worried look

and a disconcerting air.

'Excuse me Sir, please may we ask

of the ailment which you suffer,

I must confess in 2 hours here

there's been no one looking rougher.

My friend he thinks you've slipped a disc,

myself, I think it's piles'

The man he glared and drew a breath.

'You've misdiagnosed by miles.

Bad back you say, well you were wrong

With piles you were wrong too

I thought I'd wind and I was wrong

and now I've followed through!
