irlippocratic oath . We, who have sworn the Hippocratic oath,

Are dedicated to a noble cause, To cure man's ills, unsparing, never loath, To give our all, without a moment's pause. The English home's a castle, it is said, Where the embattled man defends his rights. IDUr Castle is the hospital instead; It's here for man we undertake our fights. S clear we are a dedicated band; Our interest and duty always chime, And so the ward-room barricades we've Manned, ‘tiorri to secure a rise for overtime.
