You Do You

A Nurse's Gushing Ode to Her Job

1st Place  Dribble Scribbles Winner of Poetry

I love where I work and I love what I do –
In this little poem I’ll share some reasons with you.
My profession is nursing, my calling is caring –
My patients will tell you, I’ve no trouble sharing.
I work in the best Urology practice around,
With satellite offices all over town.
I must love my job as you will see,
For I spend all day long working with pee.
Sometimes the health problems that really matter,
Are those related to the bladder.
I work with patients who don’t understand why,
They have such a difficult time staying dry.
Some leak when the bladder does extra contracting,
Others leak when bending, coughing, or laughing.
I work with many women who are really great,
And a couple of men we just tolerate.
We love our jobs and we have fun while we work.
Winning an office party would be a well deserved perk.
