It’s the third week of our Limerick Contest! All this month, we’re soliciting limericks from our readership (and free range poets!) in a competition to see if we can find the best Medical Limerick EVER.
Here are the top three entries we’ve received this week. Make sure to vote for your favorite by leaving a comment sharing which one you thought was best. At the end of the month, we’ll be having a final vote to select the best of all the winning limericks! The winner receives an autographed copy of “This Won’t Hurt A Bit!” and fame and glory!
Without further ado:
Four A.M. is a bad time to be calling
And Doc, I can tell that you’re stalling
But the patient who’s strictly NPO
Just ate an onion burrito
And the fumes have all the staff bawling!
On this unit, they say we’re a team
That’s either a hallucination or a dream
Whenever there’s a Code Brown
Nurses head out of town
Staff cohesion is not what it may seem!
I understand that your scraped knee
Is indeed a catastrophe
You’ve surely been cursed
With pain levels 12+ – “The Worst!”
Right after this Code we’ll be with you promptly!
Do You Have Poetry In Your Soul? ENTER THE CONTEST!
Here’s what you need to do:
Write a humorous limerick related to the world of nursing and patient care and send it to Cindy@journalofnursingjocularity.com Each week throughout January, we’ll be posting the best ones we receive and letting our readers vote for the best. All of the winning limericks will then be posted on January 31st, and readers will be able to each pick their favorite. The author who wrote the limerick that receives the most votes wins an autographed copy of Karyn Buxman’s This Won’t Hurt A Bit! And Other Fractured Truths in Healthcare and more importantly, fame and glory unmatched by any other honor available in the world of medical poetry today!
Don’t forget to vote! Leave a comment indicating which of the limericks are your favorite. Comments are being collected and tallied to select the winners!
