Doctors I Have Known

Of all the doctors I have known,
The best are fictional.
They never tell you what to do
And are not clinical.
Instead of waiting in a room,
You hang your doubts outside,
Then curl up in a chair or couch
And let the world subside.
Reality must fade away
Before you can perceive
The journeys back and forth through time
In ways hard to believe
By Doctor Who, who travels space
Within a strange blue box,
And Dr. Emmett Lathrop Brown
Who uses lightning shocks.

There’s even one called Dolittle
Because he does just that
For humans, though for animals
He’s quick to aid and chat.
There’s Dr. Jekyll who seems kind
Until you meet his friend;
Dissociated Mr. Hyde
Can split your hairs on end.
Doc Boy is yet another one,
But please don’t call him that,
Especially if your name is Jon
And Garfield is your cat.

And if you have a dialect
That’s hard to understand,
The name is Dr. Higgins and
I bet he’ll lend a hand.
Plus Dr. Evil don’t forget
Along with Mini-Me,
While Dr. Lecter is the king
Of silent mockery.
So many doctors, yes there are,
That I could introduce,
But I’ll end here with my favorite one,
The one called Dr. Seuss.  Copyright 2013 © Sonya Annita Song

    1. Hehe it was just a little silliness. 🙂

  1. Wow 🙂 you can write about anything under the sun…

    1. I am a true believer of that =D

      1. I feel a sudden urge to sing a gospel song. I don’t know any of the really fun ones though, like where they throw up their hands and stuff.

  2. We got to have some fun and I love Dr. Suess

    1. I still read him every now and then when I’m feeling a little blue. 🙂

  3. I like the kookiness of the fictional Dr. characters; they make me feel a heck of alot better than non-fictional doctors lol =D

    1. Well, the nonfictional ones do serve a purpose I suppose. I wouldn’t forego them altogether. 😉

  4. Hi. I just nominated you for 2 bloggers awards but lack the necessary computer skills to link that post with your blog. So please view the post and if you accept, follow the guidelines.
    And I must add how much I enjoy these posts of yours.

    1. Thank you for the gracious consideration. It gives me great pleasure to know that you enjoy my posts. 🙂

  5. LOL! Love it! That was brilliant and fun!

    1. Hehe so glad you like my silliness. It is not always appreciated by people I know. 😀

  6. Gosh, what total brilliance.

    1. Aw shucks, all in the eye of the beholder I say. 🙂

  7. Dr Who, strictly speaking, isn’t a medical doctor. And he’s not called Who either, although the mistake is easily made due to the fact that some illiterate person at the BBC could never remember to put a question mark in the titles.

    1. Lol I threw him in more for your sake than anything else. Otherwise I would have replaced him with Dr. Pepper.

      1. Or Dr. Sheldon Cooper…

  8. Excellent Cubby, your muse is on fire

    1. I hope it has fire insurance. 😀

  9. Love it and Dr. Seuss is my favorite too!

    1. He hooked us at a young age…like McDonald’s without the health complications.

  10. Dr Seuss I my fave!!! This made me smile very cute!

    1. Dr. Seuss is pretty hard to beat. 🙂

  11. A fun poem to read that made me smile.

  12. What, no Dr. House? Kidding, I’m not that big a fan. 😛
    I must say, this warmed my little geeky heart no end, especially the Doctor Who, Garfield and Dr. Seuss references. 🙂

    1. I’m so glad someone got the Garfield reference. I figured that one would be a hit or miss. Dr. Pepper almost made it in, and Dr. Hibbert and Dr. Zoidberg were cut shortly after posting. 🙂

  13. Loved it loved it loved it…and I’ve met every one of those docs! This is such a fun poem, you did a great job here! And Dr. Seuss was the very first doctor I’d ever read, a special part in my heart ever since.

    1. I tried to stick with doctors people would more likely know so ended up taking out Dr. Hibbert and Dr. Zoidberg. Ah, Matt Groening, my apologies.

      1. Should have left them in though, would have stimulated curiosity…at least in this cat! 🙂

      2. Ah! The Simsons and Futurama…American’s should all know them!

        1. I obviously know the wrong Canadians!

          1. Weren’t they invented in Canada? Heaven’s we even know them here!

  14. Paws clapping…good one. Love it.

    1. The pitter pat of padded paws make perfect playful pawed applause. 🙂

  15. Love this. Admittedly, I’m more of a Doctor Who fan than a Doctor Seuss fan, but I entirely agree with the sentiments. 🙂

    1. Hehe everyone will have their own favorite doctors. Glad you enjoyed it! 🙂

  16. I have now read this to each of my family members that I live with and they all loved it (as I knew they would)! It’s always great when I have a chance to get my teenagers to agree with me about something! 🙂

    1. Haha that’s awesome. It makes me very happy when my writing can be shared and enjoyed among family members! 😀
