Hand in hand they walk,
Indivisible, impossible to tell apart
A terror to many
wrecking havoc along their path.
Without gun or sword
Without bomb or bullet
A deadly duet.
They can't exist in isolation
A weird symbiosis
Needing each other to exist
Crippling a nation's resources.
A mother loses her child
They lurk in the shadows, grinning
A child loses his mother
They are salivating.
What can be done?
To rid the world of these two
Unfortunately, the answer lies
In the hands of a privileged few.

Papa I see you
With your Immaculate white coat
And your stethoscope strung on your shoulder
I hate to give you this jolt
But dear Papa, I don't wanna be a Doctor.
Papa, I know you have a big hospital
I know you built it from scratch
Rightfully, you expect your son to take over
But here's a newsflash...
Papa, I don't wanna be a Doctor.
Papa, quit forcing me to read the sciences
Physics,Chemistry and Biology
Newton's Laws, Periodic tables and experiments
I have no love for the laboratory
And I know Papa, I don't wanna be a Doctor.
Papa, I see you married Mom, also a Doctor
And you wonder where I got my genes from
I see this has caused quite a few arguments
And my dear Momma crying some
Just because I don't wanna be a Doctor.
Papa, I know I'm breaking your heart
What will you tell all your friends
That after spending so much on him
You have a son who all he does is sings
A son who doesn't wanna be a Doctor.

Hey Doctor, how are you?
You seem awful stressed out today
I noticed a tear at the hem of your coat
Don't you think you should have it checked?
Don't worry, I will get someone to check it out for you.
No Doctor, there is nothing wrong with me
Rather I am here to help you out
I have about a thousand troops
All I need to do is make a call
And they would all come running down.
I am Lord and Master of the High Seas
Surely, you would have heard of me
At the sound of my voice the pirates quiver
I was sent to rid the world of evil
I am a very important person as you can see.
I am wealthy beyond measure
I have castles in France, Belgium and Spain
Servants to meet my every pleasure
I have a banquet everynight
Doc, you should come visit me one of these days.
No, Doctor, you cannot stick that needle into me
You obviously don't know who I am
I'm only here on vacation to help the world
There's nothing wrong with me
No Doctor; no, don't do that!
NB: Patients with Grandiose Delusions have an unshakeable belief they are someone very important, usually larger than life ; they also have an engaging personality and are filled with stories that can easily get you carried away. Read more about it here.

Why bother? She will die anyway
I know, but I have to do something
But the same thing happens everyday
I agree, but I just can't sit and do nothing.
You are tired, go to sleep
No I can't, I have to check if she's fine
It doesn't matter, the monitors will still beep
I know, but the responsibility is still mine.
Tell her to go home, nothing can be done.
No I won't, I can't give up hope
Don't touch her! Don't you know its airborne?
I have to, will wash later with soap.
Why not leave? You're not making any difference
Doesn't matter, I have to put in my quota
look at you quoting such nonsense
Be that as it may, she's still someone's daughter.
