Nurses So you worked as a nurse, where the real work is done, where you are taking them to toilets, and showering them some, Where the snotty little upstarts, New sisters on the ward, Busy popping pills, Wont help you, so annoyed, If you dare to ask, A lift with fat boy Floyd, Class distinction, rears up it's big head, When they look down so smart, wont make up a bed, Jumped up little upstarts, Think they’re better than you, ned, So then you dare to ask the head nurse, For some help out on the ward, And then you are told to “suck it up, For wages you’re employed,” An appreciation slice, So sweet an SO nice, To the Robot-Android…. Don Johnson One of me 100 jobs…

    A nurse is one of the most unappreciated positions in the world! But it is always nice to receive the vast majority of their help when they come around(sometimes they come with a needle, we don't usually want that)! This write is so very brilliant my friend! I loved reading this delightful piece of a true job position! What a harmonious poem, a awesome piece Don, Great Work!!

    Smiling much truth in this one, I'm headed to work now to do just as you described, I have 6 residents on those lifts and the head nurse doesn't help. Excellent write! A fellow Robot-Android. Hugs
