To let a daughter/son be a nurse

To be a nurse ? (Photo by Sam Lion on Pexels.com)

Once, nursing was

synonymous with women.

But not anymore

Today there are male

as well as female nurses.

****

Once, they used

to wear caps.

But not anymore.

They used to say even ghosts

would make way for the cap

along hospital corridors at nights.

****

Once, they said

“are you letting your girl

go dress rotten (diabetic) leg sores”?

Not knowing, there are even bigger wounds to care for.

****

Today, parents may ask,

“are you letting your girl/ boy

be a nurse; a noble profession…

but, knowing the risks of COVID-19?”
