Verses About DOCTORS and their PRACTICES

WORDPLAY post #148          


SATIRE COMPOSED: Giorgio Coniglio, November 2018. The involved verses have also been web-published or are under review at OEDILF.com, an online humour dictionary that has accumulated over100,000 carefully edited limericks.

FOLLOW-UP: More such verses are being compiled, and will be posted in February 2019.

SONGLINKS: For those readers who like poetry set to music: You can find lots of singable limerick-medleys on our sister blog "SILLY SONGS and SATIRE", such as this recent post. There are also, for those interested, quite a few parody-songs, (complete with chord indications for stringed instruments)  about the world of patients and doctors, as listed at the end of today's collection of poems. The lyrics are dubbed into songs that you likely know well, so ENJOY! 















Insider info: The new high-tech modality PET entails 'coincidence imaging' with positron emitters, such as fluorine-18, unusual drugs that give off two gamma-rays simultaneously in exactly opposite direction with each radiodecay event. In contrast, older technology with standard radiolabels, often designated by the initialism 'SPECT' (single-photon emission computed tomography) was used by imaging  specialists such as our protagonist 'Dr. Specter'.
