Numerous tubes , Monitors
A constant flow of come and go .
White and light
Bedside tables filled .
Nurses trying to be happy and bright
- Encapsulation of a hospital ward .
The seriously ill , The very sick
Naturally they all want to be at home .
Even though in blunt truth , They are nearer
deaths door .
The medical professionals , In their skill and care .
Battle to restore them to a surviving level of health .
All the while battling cantankerousness
- And being taken for granted
