The exercise:

Today's starter shall be: the blood test.

Hurray for giant, blood sucking needles! Le sigh.

Mine:

The doctor stepped back with a gasp,
The patient loosed a wheezing rasp,
The nurse ran screaming from the room,
The cleaner hid behind his broom.
The mother collapsed with a thud -
Merely at the sight of green blood.

You Canadians are the fore-runners of Vulcans then? I could actually believe that....

It's a great little poem though :)

The blood test

I sat in the corner holding back tears,
My blood test results had come through.
They'd only confirmed my very worst fears,
My blood was cleverer than me too.

Well I can say, with great confidence, that I did not see that last line coming.

Awesome :)
