Internal Medicine Poem

I am frequently asked:  What is Internal Medicine?  The answer: "I am the doctor for adults" or I am the primary care physician", just doesn't seem to cover it.  I think this poem from the Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA) does:

Today I Saw

diabetes in a brown pantsuit
recently widowed, bringing her daughter
for the first time.

Bladder cancer still working
full time after surgery
