The Stethoscope



The stethoscope connects

My brain right to his heart

It brings the beats of pain

From him right from the start


I hear his thumps of fear

But did that travel through?

No, not along the rubber

It's from his pores and grew


His worry for his health

Had been a long long while

But did he go for help?

No, that's not the macho style


"I have good news dear sir

No sign of sickness found"

A thunderous shout of joy

Rushed out without a sound......

Read Teddy's hilarious poem. Got me thinking about anyone going to see a doctor. 

I have found that men, in general, tend to 'disregard' many symptoms and often appear late to see a doctor. They worry but they fear......

    This is so true dear Rozina….all are alike… and human nature with overthinking and googling is scared to visit a doctor…once they do they find it wasn’t an elephant but ant…generally an issue of lifestyle problems…

    • Rozina

      Correct. Thank you.

        Okay, I've sawed my leg off, she's going mad. I'll phone an ambulance.
        No, don't do that, an Elastoplast will do. Okay, you might be right. lol

          reading your poems
          I can't help, but think
          we men, cause you
          too much concern
          do you, sister!
          that's a much better use
          of your precious Time
          we men
          won't be changing
          anytime soon...
          thanks for sharing, dear poet

            Thank you Mek. In some countries/cultures, the gender difference in behaviour/thinking is so different across many fields including health, education.

                Good one Rozina, it is so good to hear when the Doctor says all is OK.


                • Rozina

                  Yes it is a relief. Thank you.
