ECTOME? OTOMY? PHYS? PSY? by Gaylia Kenslow – Stogsdill


Hours you’ve spent in getting’ your schoolin’ –

Hard work you’ve accomplished and that’s no foolin’ –

You’ve learned a lot on “anatomy” –

And how our “innards” are s’posed to be.

You’ve studied what’s proper for us to eat –

And watched in “surgery”, while they sliced “meat”.

You’ve found blood pressures vary for other reasons –

Than the “opposite Sex” and “mating season”.

You know a “bedpan” has other “uses” –

Then eliminating “highway” abuses.

Your vocabulary now has many words –

That a few years ago, you’d never heard.

“Ectomy” and “otomy” are only two –

Then “ism” and “itis” – who knows better than you?

Of the work behind the “phys” and “pay” –

And the strain the studying put on your eyes.

So take all your “larnin” and education –

And be the “best darned nurse” in the entire nation.
