I Prescribe TV
If you want to see a doctor – simply turn on the TV
For every other programme’s medical, I guarantee.
We’ve Doctors, Medics, House, ER and also Holby City,
Embarassing Bodies, A & E, and also Casualty.
There’s Doctor Hilary, Doctor Chris, and Doctor Pixie too,
Steer clear of Gillian McKeith – obsessed with number two!
There’s Doctor Phibes, who loved his spouse, and Docs Evil, and No,
The soaps have medicine in them too, though not in every show.
Sherlock had Doctor Watson, who was always at his side,
And Doctor Henry Jekyll, who turned into Edward Hyde.
A TV diagnosis is the fastest you can get,
Even on a Zoo Visit, you are sure to see a Vet.
Of course my favourite medic has a surgery that’s blue.
I wish he was my GP – well – who else but Doctor Who!

A Writer’s Motivation Tip that could inspire your own creative writing or at least put a smile on your face 🙂
“It is important that we appreciate what we have and that we do our best to see beauty in each day. At the end of the day I make a little list of all the nice things that have happened – could be something simple like a toddler smiling at me, or the red robin in our garden singing a song, thanking me for the food I put out. I put a smiley next to each incident and then it occurs to me that, even if I’ve been depressed, something good happened. It does so every day.” – Cornelia J. Glynn
