I once knew a Doctor’s wife
You would have thought she was a Doctor
but she had no degree
apart from her love for her husband.
She knew all the doses of the drugs
She knew where all the drugs were kept
She knew most of the patients in the wards
She could almost guess the right diagnosis if asked.
She attended the Women’s Ante-Natal classes
And even got up to lecture the pregnant women
She monitored the nurses
And kept a keen eye on the accounts.
I never had a problem with the Doctor’s wife
Until that fateful day
When she put her head through my door
And suggested what drug I should give my patient.
