From the The Eaten Nurse to the eater Nurse
Sad is they name, O wicked one
That brings another down to make thyself feel better
Know me ye from Adam?
What wrong did I commit?
That you should treat me so.
I seek only to become a partner in this field of ours and be able to hold my own
Teach me the skills, I pray
Show me the ropes, I beg
But shame me not, I ask!
The "eater" nurse to the "eaten" nurse
Hare-brained one! How clueless thou art!
You come waltzing into the nursing world
Full of hare-brained grandiose ideas
With a jaded view of nursing already made
I seek not to eat you but to show you
And if in my eagerness I come across wrong
How can I help myself?
It is not a failing but a strength that in my eagerness to teach and show you
That I come across strong and mean to you
It is to be sure that you forget me not, as you go about
Perfecting your nursing skills
How then can I be accused of, "eating my young", when all I seek
Is a better nurse of you make
O newbie nurse, be not so harsh of me in delivering judgment
I seek only to help in your learning as the curve is steep
And consequences deep
Pray newbie nurse! Attempt to look beyond the surface of what I do
It is only for your confidence I do so
A day is coming in the not-so-distant- future when in my position you will be
I pray my thought crosses your mind on that day
So, my dear nurse colleague, be light in your judgment
For I rooted for you all the way- ANON
Quote from BrandonLPN
I never saw a wild thing
sorry for itself.
A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough
without ever having felt sorry for itself.
This quote reminds me of G.I.Jane lol.
This thread is funny.
I should have made a poem.
I ruin everything.
