My hand hurt from sleeping funny
And I had to give a shot,
asking a friend to give it was fruitless
my hand was bent, two fingers deformed
"I will give it" Child grabs it from my hand
Injects into the patients butt.

There is a billboard saying
"Gail does everything wrong
and sucks"
"Well, do you?" asks the head nurse, at the morning
monthly meeting
"No!" I reply raising my crippled hand. "You have to correct this!"
"We will put in more computers." She says while writing a note.

"This is a budget issue. you are not involved, particularly.
I will put in the request today." stares as me blankly as I try to speak and
nothing comes out.

"But my patients are suffering! Pain! Hunger!"
"Oh, I will make a note of it"
And she does.

I stretch my fingers and they straighen out. Still pain.
"My hand is better" Hard stares
"We don't care, but we will adjust the budget. and you
must take a desk job." Smirks
"I want to be a nurse. To cleanse infections, give blood and help people"
"Well they don't want to look at YOU. you deformed, ugly
piece of.."
"STOP!" says the medical secretary "I am deformed and ugly too."
I am not ugly!"
"Yes you are. and we only take ugly patients Nurse Mariposa, get her a room!"

They were looking for a room while I escaped through a hole in the sheets.
It was a worm hole and I ended up in another land
"Good morning" said Glinda the good witch, touching me with her cardboard
magic wand. "I can give you a shot"
The little people were marching on a yellow path and singing
Punk Rock and Heavy Metal.
"I want to go home!": I shouted.

You know the rest.

Thanks, B-man! I really had no idea about these two nurse poems and need some feed back! Yours always counts as two people Wink (two feedbacks)
