The Veterinarian. Poem by Tony Adah

The Veterinarian.

Rating: 4.5

The veterinarian
Is the only doctor that
Eats his patients
He devours chicken breast
And still visits to see
Chickens in flu and puts
Some pills in water
For them to heal.

The veterinarian
Is the only doctor that
Eats his patients
A cow has foot and mouth
And he is on hand to help
Still his freezer is full of fresh milk
And beef is the meat he eats
The veterinarian
Is the only doctor that
Eats his patients.

This was funny in a way it probably shouldn't have been, I couldn't help but crack a chuckle with the foot and mouth bit, awesome word play. You have amazing foresight and it does make you ponder the significance of this occupation, however there is also a small possibility. The Veterinarian could be a vegetarian. Awesome stuff, great idea and fantastic execution.
