>LOOKING DOWN THE MICROSCOPE (poem)

Filed under: VEDANTA — Tags: , , , — arpanam @ 1:57 pm

Small round blue cells, in a 3 yrs old eye,

they would never see blueness of the sky.

Months later, other eye, blossomed rosettes.

Years later, in Braille someone read: “they also formed fleurettes”


Through the window, a teenager limped, for life crutches tied.

Through the lens, his femur showed, tumor-osteoid.


Unlike us, malignant cells follow some quaint order,

which we appreciate, in order to diagnose, a disorder.

For carcinoma, we need to look for pleomorphism.

For lymphoma, we opportunist, take help of monomorphism.

Myxoma, we easily pick up, in myocardial tissue,

but lack of compassion, is the pathology, the real issue.
