Ode to joy and tinsel
Ophthalmic nurse Jane Bates’ festive message for visiting NHS managers
’T was the night before Christmas,
a stranger appeared,
Holding a clipboard,
sporting a beard.
Who’s this, cried the nurses, as they showed
him the door,
I’m NHS Top Brass, need I say more?
I’ve come to observe you and make
sure you don’t
Take seasonal liberties, as is your wont.
