An Apple A Day Keeps The Doc Away - Poem by Bernard F. Asuncion

A beautiful nurse named Angelica
Is working at the medical center;
She looks very fine each and every day
With her uniform as she feels better.

A physician named Doctor Al Visa
Is wanting to court the lovely lady;
He knows that one of his technologists
Has got a crush on that nurse on duty.

One day the doctor sends the clever John
To the hospital branch in far-flung place;
The latter is sad and full of worries,
For he‘ll be out for seven working days.

Technologist John plans a strategy
To counter the aim of the slick surgeon;
The former is so terrified to lose
The heart of the nurse to dark oblivion.

So he buys seven apples as present
To the nurse without a doubt or delay;
To win her both hands the nice proverb says:
"An apple a day keeps the doc away".
