Doing Nothing

I was inspired to get all poetical about Professor Gillian Leng, when I developed a bit of an empathetic itch after reading all about her inspirational NHS savings’ plan (SkyNews, June 30, 2018):  

‘Doing nothing’
is ‘best.’
Promising zilch
is fine.
Talking with May
is fair.

It’s fair to
an op
or two.

It’s fine to
a grommet.

It’s best to let the old man  s  n  o  r  e ……
And fair for the kid’s
with their tonsils so sore.

It’s best for the breast –
it’s okay to dr

It’s fine to be Gillian,
who scans well with Giles;
and it’s cheap to do ‘nothing’ –
when she ends up with piles!
