You can bet they never came out of the machine with that nice curved shape.
There will be no baby. I feel bad making fun of it, because it is clearly heartfelt. This is part of the problem with hospital poetry. It is very heartfelt, whereas I think most popular poetry comes from people who have strong emotions but also some distance from them and a little bit of post-processing.
And unfortunately doctors, who are on this decades-long quest to prove they are actual people with real feelings and not just arrogant robot-like people in white coats who know a very large number of facts about thyroiditis, just eat this sort of thing up.
Connell, and everyone in Cork I really appreciate all your hard work Doctors and nurses eat this kind of thing up and put it on shiny plaques that go on the walls of the hospital. I suggest a wall near the gastroenterology unit, to expedite care for people who start vomiting.
Wait, am I calling hospitals hellish? They run the gamut of human screams. There are wordless shrieks. When I first started working in hospitals, I would not only inevitably run over to these screams, but I would feel contempt and anger at the rest of the hospital staff who would just continue their daily routine.
I soon learned better. The bystander effect, my last defense, disappeared. Sometimes I would make a stand by asking the nurse to increase their pain medication or something, and be politely told all the reasons why that was a bad idea from a medical perspective pain medication has lots of side effects which doctors monitor carefully.
In the end I would just slink out of the room, wishing I had never come in. So the constant screams being completely ignored by a bunch of happy people going through their day is pretty hellish. Usually we are able to avoid thinking about people as bodies except to briefly note that certain people like Emma Watson are really hot.

Still others have skin covered with the sorts of bacterial colonies you usually only see on a petri dish. The senses are under constant assault. Smell is the worst. There are some people who can identify different infections by smell.
Pseudomonas aeruginosa is supposed to smell fruity. Gardnerella is supposed to smell fishy. Clostridium is supposed to smell like the worst thing you can possibly imagine, if it were then covered in feces and left to rot on a warm summer day.
But the other senses get their time too. The sight is vexed by flashing call lights. I am an IV line! He did a good job on prisons in Ballad of Reading Gaol, and I feel like the skill would transfer: He does not rise in piteous haste To put on convict-clothes, While some coarse-mouthed doctor gloats, and notes each new and nerve-twitched pose, Fingering a watch whose little ticks Are like horrible hammer-blows […] He does not stare upon the air Through a little roof of glass; He does not pray with lips of clay For his agony to pass; Nor feel upon his shuddering cheek The kiss of Caiaphas.
Dante would also be an acceptable choice. You may have read the excellent article How Doctors Die. If I get a terminal disease, I want to wring what I can out of the few months of life I have left and totally avoid any surgery, chemotherapy, amputations, ventilators, and the like.
It would be a clean death. It would be okay. Even if my doctors and nurses and caretakers are sympathetic, my only legal option, without exposing them to jail time, is to starve myself to death — something both painful and difficult, and itself not really the way I want to go.
My attending was taking care of the paperwork in the other room, and I was sitting there reflecting, and I started thinking about what it would be like to die in that room.
