The Royal Free

The Royal Free hums its energetic life

As I sit musing in my garden

A background drone always there

As the hospital is always open for care

It's summer so the trees mask its physical presence 

Just the joined up sound of health and excellence

We moved here with two small boys

And thought being near The Free might be handy

Energetic boys in an energetic city

Who knows the cuts, bashes and bumps that would need its care

Decades in now and only minor scrapes, but always efficient whenever there

The staff spill out lunch and evenings 

Always bright and cheerful despite hours of pressure 

A caring group in a caring profession 

Born to care, born to love, born to cherish

Not at all born to run

But definitely when free of The Free

Born for Fun
