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
