My Cousin: The Nurse

I’m Robyn, and I’ve got a proper job;

a student nurse, and I work bloody hard

with long shifts! Unlike other students – slobs

with part-time hours, books and library cards.


I bet they can’t insert a catheter

with a warm smile that reaches tired red eyes,

or touch snot to take your temperature!

See, its my hands, not books, that make me wise.


Forget the budget cuts and politics.

Forget the paperwork and other shit.

I love my job – to heal and mend and fix.

I love to nurse and care with joy and wit!
