I was in a bad mood before the bus came, But I didn't know it was 'bout to get worse. This guy next to me - who seemed totally tame - Suddenly turned, pointed at me, and shouted out "MURSE!" Well, deep inside me ignited a flame. I boiled and rumbled; so mad I could curse! "Listen buddy, you don't have to call names, Just because I'm a man who is also a nurse!" The guy looked surprised when he heard me exclaim. He blinked, then he laughed "There's no need to be terse! While I think your profession's a laughable shame, I was talking 'bout that guy with the big ol' man-purse."
