Nursie Caroline

Nursie Caroline


In hospital, been thinking

(As well as knitting bones)

Nurses are a wondrous lot

They're here for me, on loan


I really do applaud them

It's not a daily grind

It is more like a calling

They never seem to mind


I've still to yet get over

All that they do do

"Please help me nurse I need to

Go now, to the loo"


This doesn't even bother them

They've seen a lot of bod

Then why should I then worry so ?

There's nothing 'bout me odd


I'm sorry I can't show you

A pic of Caroline

My favourite nurse who helps me

To loo most every time

Hello folks, it's Caroline here
Don's my favourite boy
I hang out by his door in wait
Waiting for his "hoy?"

I'm in the door quick as a flash
"I'm at your service Don"
Please soothe my aching back Car
(No, this ain't a con)

They say Don's now on two legs
Can self him, shower and loo
It seems he still needs 'ttention
From me, to soothe and woo

I will be sad to see him go
An empty bed instead of
I guess they all get well in end
And then they all must head off

Dorothy, I hope I've
Told the nursie goal
Jonny next door's calling
Gotta fly, do role. ?

It's hard to remain deadpan
When in dire need of a bedpan...
There's always a time
For amusing rhyme -
And writing about when you care to pee
Can also be good therapy! ?
I understand where this is coming from. I'd much rather have this sort
of care from a detached professional than from someone close.

You have not lost your touch or your humour - if you can persuade her, we would like to hear Caroline's side of the story.
