The urge to classify –

A Pathologist can never defy.

An example of this, in its full splendour

Are the Lymphomas they plunder!

From Rap to Kiel,

From WHO to REAL,

Sifting through clefts and cleaves,

Is a terrifying ordeal.

Sometimes they FISH, sometimes they Rye,

May also end up counting stars in the sky.

In a sea of CDs they sink to the bottom,

Despite this, none can they fathom.

But now, we no longer need fear

For microarrays are here;

To wipe our frowns from across the mile,

And tackle lymphomas with a smile!!
