Doctors Analysis

Author: poem of Anne Sexton Type: poem Views: 2

Sponsored Links

They work with herbs

and penicillin

They work with gentleness

and the scalpel.

They dig out the cancer,

close an incision

and say a prayer

to the poverty of the skin.

They are not Gods

though they would like to be;

they are only a human

trying to fix up a human.

Many humans die.

They die like the tender,

palpitating berries

in November.

But all along the doctors remember:

First do no harm.

They would kiss if it would heal.

It would not heal.

If the doctors cure

then the sun sees it.

If the doctors kill

then the earth hides it.

The doctors should fear arrogance

more than cardiac arrest.

If they are too proud,

and some are,

then they leave home on horseback

but God returns them on foot.

.: :.

my first reaction is the message behind this poem is that doctors are not the cure for death. and that they be humbled in the fact that they too themselves will die.
