Do No Harm

“First do no harm” – Primum non nocere

responsibility and the cost thereof

who bears responsibility

who carries the burden

when others do not


what price is paid

in blood or stress?

they pay in blood, but not their own

sooner or later the piper calls


hippocratic or hypocrite?

to do no harm one must,

at least be able to do

I came to save not bury


the greater the responsibility

the greater the cost

what is the price

of keeping others alive?
