Poetic Licence: A Patient Writes
A debate is currently raging over the strict code of ethics forbidding consensual sex between doctors and patients. Why don't they ask the patients?
Wednesday 26 June 1996
Doctors ooze allure
Should they shtup their patients?
Why not? Sure!
Doctors must get lonely
Look how hard they work
Are their only perk.
Help your doctor help you
Lie down on the floor
Sigh: "Oh, God, I love you
More. More. More."
Ring the BMA up
That's the thing to do
Say your doctor's knackered
Then they send you two.
If a doctor calls you
Asks you how you are
Then proposes meeting
Later in a bar
Don't be sanctimonious
Change and comb your hair
Long as it's consensual
Nobody should care
Why do all these killjoys
Hurry to condemn?
It's because the doctor
Doesn't fancy them
Do the patients want it?
Yes, of course we do!
Only thing that stalls us
Is the endless queue.
