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.
