Oncology

For the staff of the Queens Centre, Castle Hill Hospital, Willerby, East Yorkshire for their dedicated care

I am a watcher in this room,
Alternative to the surgeon's knife,
Where the Magic Chairs
Help in the fight for life.

The machines gently click
As they pump the toxic charms
In a strictly controlled flow
To the veins of waiting arms
Of those with shaven heads
Or their wigs of false hair,
Just one small price paid
For their being sat there.
All around this large room
There is such a feeling of cheer
That I wouldn't have believed
Had I not been sitting here.

I am a watcher in this room,
As I sit with my wife
And watch the Magic Chairs
Bring back to her a quality life.
