Medical-ese: A Tour Of Body Fluids
‘Tween liver and limb,
there’s organs, within
the cavity called “peritoneal”,
but what’s not really great,
is an exudate,
that leaves everything feeling congealed.
‘Tis better, instead,
what’s in your head,
that oozes from choroid plexus;
it bathes the brain,
and the neurons—ah, don’t forget us!
Now we all know this,
the fluid called “piss”,
is an ultra-sifting of plasma;
take a whizz, lest it cause a miasma.
A pleural effusion
is not like funk-fusion,
but rather, a drowning, instead;
gives lungs, their action
but overflows make for quick death.
The joints called “synovial”
can keep you quite jovial
so long as they’re lubricated well;
but if crystals build up
as uric acid’s used up,
the gout will cause painful hell.
So remember, my friends,
the fun never ends—
there’s far more to medical, than here;
without early detection,
will spew liquid poo from your rear.
