A Pregnant Pause?

In these days of lockdown, there’s not much that’s fun

That’s something that everyone knows

The highlight of each of the weeks as they pass

Is sticking a swab up ones nose


Two evenings a week we all sit on our own

And watch a short film as it shows – a

Sequence of steps that we now must all take

To sample our nasal mucosa


The adding of saline to tubes, it is easy

But then comes the bit that one hates

The ticklish problem that has to be faced

Of brushing ones own turbinates


Once done though it’s then that we nervously sit

As pregnant with tension we wait

If two lines appear then the questions will come

Of who we’ve spent time with of late!

Nothing particularly interesting to say other than I'm a GP with an interest in emotional well-being, an avid Somerset County Cricket Club supporter and a poor example of a Christian who likes to put finger to keyboard from time to time and who is foolish enough to think that someone out there may be interested enough to read what I've written. Some of these blogs have grown over time and some portions of earlier blogs reappear in slightly different forms in later blogs. Apologies for the repetition. What I have posted today (6th August 2018) consists of what I have written over the last few years - whether I write anything ever again, only time will tell.
