2005 / 05 / 18 - Studying Pharmacy - Poem by A Poem A Day

Studyin' pharmacy ain't easy, I've been told
By many people, some young and some old...
Well, let me tell you, I'm not a nerd
So take off your lips this ugly word.

Pharmacy ain't as hard as you suppose
You just need a very curious nose,
A pair of working eyes, but one is enough
Two ears, coz with one you may find it tough,
A sportive tongue ready to pronounce
All the weird names, titles and nouns,
A bit of free space in your brains
And, for the hard days, some chains;
An ability to memorize a lot and a lot
Whether you actually understand or not,
The skill to never object or complain
When a teacher chooses not to explain,
A mouth that shuts up when you're told to,
One working hand, better if you got two,
The faculty of studying 20 pages per hour
The power to feel clean without a shower
And to stay awake without having slept too
(Because you might not find time to) .

That's the indispensible equipment
You might thrown in, if you want,
Some scientifical knowledge and some intelligence.
Add to these opitonals a lot of patience
To manage busy secretaries, stupid educators,
Curious patients and brainless doctors.

That's about it, but you could use
A pair of nice pants and trendy shoes.

    This is a nice poem. Though i still think Studying pharmacy is a difficult thing to do. That's why i always say, i'd have studied journalism or political science if i had joined the University :)
    But still it's a nice poem. I loved it.
