DOCTORS ON CALL .



CALL DUTY BLUES.



Another day away from home,

Another day to lie on this worn out foam.

Is it Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday, I can't really remember

Public holidays,weekends, family celebrations, no longer matter.




But one thing I do remember,

That patient who was rushed in with a fever.

Is there something I could have done any better?

Or that patient who died an hour ago

Did I really put in my best or did I just watch him go?




Who is that on the phone?

Sorry I can't pick your call now as I can hear my patient groan.

The night is calm,everywhere is quiet, the birds have gone to sleep

No,wait! What is that sound that permeates the deep?

What are those flashing lights in the distance?

Oh, its another emergency, gotta shake off any sleep this instant.
