Blood inside our bodies flows
To keep our tickers ticking.
We never think about it ‘til
A problem’s up and kicking.

A tiny sample might reveal
Deficiencies or glitches,
For blood cells can’t keep secrets – 
They’re like adolescent snitches.

The needle hits a vein and then
The truth comes pouring out
To let the doctor know
What all the fuss was all about.

Amazingly, one little vial
Can give a needed clue,
Which was within us all along,
But hidden from our view.

    Yeah, those adolescent snitches have saved my ass a time or two ;-). Very clever and well-rhymed. Sometimes, however, those doctors don't quite understand what the blood is trying to tell them. Some secrets will remain so for a little bit longer, I am afraid.
