Banbury Cross

Ride a cock horse to Banbury Cross

to see a fine lady who wears a white coat.

With gloves on her fingers and mask on her nose

hope they’ll protect her wherever she goes.

 

Ride a cock horse to Banbury Cross

to meet with a doctor who’ll do as she must

No rings on her fingers or bells on her toes

But lives in her hands and a difficult task.

 

No pouting, no posing, celebrity fans;

anonymous doctor in surgical gown.

No twitter or Facebook or instagram fun

just wards full of patients with a tough job to do.

So who will we value when all this is through?

Will celebrity matter? I’m not sure. Are you?
