My first emergency duty!

Oh! It was morning, winter mornings are beauty,

And I so excited, 'coz of my first emergency duty.

I was on time, the patients were few,

Though the air was strange, nothing seemed new.

The morning was cool, there wasn't much load,

My excitement did abate, and I felt a little bored.

The noon and evening passed, but the night had lot in store,

It's the heaviest part, they say! Yes, I had heard it before.

I did my first suturing, in the middle of night,

Blood, cries all around, it was a sorry sight.

At 02:00 hours I felt bit sleepy, night wasn't over yet,

I will plead for the rest, senior residents made me bet.

Patients came and went, I drained some abscess,

Ryles, Foleys, IV lines, the load seemed excess.

At 04:00 hours, I felt dizzy and had a little nap,

Residents still active, their efforts made me clap.

I gathered some strength and continued my duty,

Soon the sun rose, this morning wasn't that beauty.

The last couple of hours, my body started bowing,

The hopes and blessings of patients kept me going.

Morning round was long, neurons stopped firing,

I admitted I lost the bet, the duty was very tiring.

The rounds got over, and I ran to my bed,

I thanked God at last duty came to an end.
