Two entries in one day; now that is really productive, and there does seem to be an undercurrent of commonality.

Syndrome and Disease

Mary has a syndrome
And Bob has a disease,
While Mortimer Snoot
Just had a little sneeze,

Bill has a disorder
A derangement of function,
Betty is almost dead
And requires extreme unction.

All these classical terms
A fancy way to say, “you're sick”,
It sounds like a conspiracy
Let's try and bury you, quick;
Before you figure out
What our medical lingo means,
We want you unconscious
When we pull the wallet from your jeans.
