Editorial state "Held"
(The poet's) Family
Authors' Note: Avoidance of discriminatory gender-bias in language is an unassailable aim.
In the medical field, there are many terms which are problematic due to syllables that in written or spoken form make them seem suspect for such bias. Usually, however, this 'problem' is happenstance based on the incorporation of Greek root-words. Sometimes the level of comedy is reached, as in the near-homonym for the male possessive form in the term HYSterectomy' (surgical removal of the uterus). Other medical and non-medical terms with hidden gender-related messages as in the above verses are indicated by font colour.
To access more of this poetic cornucopia, you can proceed onward to the collection 'Poets' Corner #3' (February 2023, 6 poems) ...
