The Surgeon   1 comment

Hands scrubbed
Face masked
Skin pale
Scalpel sharp
One deep breathe
Calm the nerves
Steady the hand
Follow the curves
Slow moving scalpel
Clammy skin
Thick line of red
Bubbles from within
Hands of steel
No ordinary man
one life to save
if he can
Waiting for word
Children and spouse
the hours so endless
No episode of House
Complete the surgery
No moral concerns
an ethical practice
in modern terms

Surgery now over
another life saved
Years of training
Repaid each day
