The Healing Oath

The Healing Oath

At the hospital accidentally bumped into Mr. Hippocrates
Shared with him my benign experiences with some faculties
Foremost the gynaecologist who pinched me to make me cry
For disturbing my sleep I’d given her a smile wry

Difficulty climbing stairs with one wobbly and other creaky knee
An orthopaedic advised to replace both for a hefty fee
An otolaryngologist magically pulled out wax from my ear
Oh! We call them an ENT is what I hear

One chair I don’t readily sit in, is the dentist’s
The ominous drill machine makes my heart go in twists
Erratic heart beats at this age; gave jitters than thrills
The cardiologist assured everything is fine until the ECG stills!!!!
