Typewriter Rodeo: To Our Favorite Healthcare Team

Each week, the Standard reaches out to Austin’s Typewriter Rodeo for a custom poem.

It’s National Nurses Week. This Typewriter Rodeo poem celebrates the people that are there to help in some of the happiest and most difficult periods of life.

To Our Favorite Healthcare Team

Worried and weary
and a bit worse for the wear
we tumble into our appointment

Quickly enveloped in your care and concern
We weave our way through
wellness checks
and deep breaths
mighty injections
and minute med tweaks

And here’s the thing:
We know so deeply
That you have our back
That you’re there for us

With insight
and kindness

But today I need you to know:
That we also have your back
That we’ll work to make our gratitude known
That the work you’re doing is
changing lives
saving lives
allowing us to live our best lives

To our RNs CMAs NPs MDs DOs
Our team
Our guides
Our partners on this journey

Thank you
Thank you
Thank you
