A Poem for Doctors' Day

Doctors by Morgan Lee

They are super heroes disguised in dress shirts,

with blue or green scrubs underneath.

The understated comedians, who should usually keep their day jobs.

They are thinkers and doers, sometimes even simultaneously.

They contain mental stamina and finesse greater than any athlete.

And although it might not be rocket science, sometimes it is brain surgery.
