It’s always good to know, when well,
Your baseline, a technique
To determine when your body’s off,
For we are all unique.
So what your “normal” readings are –
For fever, pressure, weight,
Might then juxtapose with standards
And you’ll know what’s on your plate.
Thus, if you possess a speedy pulse
You doc won’t be alarmed
If, upon examination,
With this knowledge he is armed.
And that is why my son was calm,
Not needing my reproof,
When I told him I was stressed;
He knows my baseline’s through the roof.
