One Who Needs No Introduction
Dr. X. A splendid surgeon, At banquets speaks Without much urgin'. He takes the floor, Alas, alack, And some hours later Gives it back. He clears his throat, He sips his drink, He hems and haws And stops to think. In surgery He's sure and swift, His way with scalpels Is a gift. He can trepan The thickest skull.... His knife is sharp-- His tongue is dull.
