Poor Doctor Dickory,
he failed chemistry,
a tough pill to swallow
for a man so versed.

Valerie Snickery,
didn’t like men, you see,
in the infirmary
she worked as a nurse.

From in the “sickery”
“Doc” called the nursery
to send her some flowers,
but Valerie cursed.

She declared victory,
when she shot “Doc”, you see
she carried a pistol
right there in her purse!
