My Cousin, Dr. Kenneth Rosenthal is in town this weekend for a Gastroenterology convention. He told me last night at dinner that MDigestive CARE™, a medical group of 46 gastroenterologists in Broward and Palm Beach County, has launched the "Bottom Line Poetry Contest" to draw attention to March being National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month.
Cousin Kenny said, "By launching this Bottom Line Poetry Contest, we hope to bring more attention to the life-saving value of regular colonoscopies as part of a person's ongoing professional medical care." A prize of $500 or the option of a free colonoscopy will be awarded to the best original poem about colonoscopies.
Here is my entry:
There once was a man with a colon,
That was, inexplicably stolen.
So his GI re-routed,
Made his insides less crowded,
And finally put a new hole in.
