‘Call the Ambulance?’ | Anon Paramedic

Posted by

This poem has been sent into us by a paramedic who is on the front line of the fight against COVID-19:

‘Don’t call if you have a cough.

Nor if you have a fever 

Don’t call because you’re feeling rough 

And not an eager beaver 

Covid-19 can make you feel grim 

Your body all achy and tired 

But checking 111 online 

Would be the action required 

With pillows, you can prop 

If you breathing gets short 

But to call the Ambulance Service 

Should be the absolute last resort 

Don’t call us for a symptom check 

For you may expose us to the bug 

And we have no magic treatment 

Paracetamol is your drug 

A paper mask and an apron 

Is our level of protection 

So please don’t expose us 

To your developing infection 

We may well get ill ourselves 

Or pass it on to someone frail 

And if that were to happen 

Our displeasure we may not veil 

To get this thing resolved 

Please follow the government’s advice 

Show some personal restraint 

And don’t roll the Covid dice’
