The Kidney Got Blowed Up

Language Sinner

I thought nothing was funnier
Than Doctor's dictation,
Until I read Nursing notes
In our grammar-poor nation,
An entry discovered yesterday
Surely takes the cup,
Regarding an Iodine Allergy:

Yes, that's how it reads
At the top of the page,
On the EMR Chart
In our digital age,
Where spelling and grammar
And gibberish, show evidence,
Suggest a lack of education
And no common sense.

The computer-based document
Allowed me to learn,
Whoever wrote that nonsense
Needs a reprimand, stern,
An embarrassment certainly
To the likes of our profession,
Come forward, language sinner!
And deliver your confession.
