We are fine with our medicine crown, May be not the necklace of stethoscope, But we play with colours of chemical stroke, May be no prescription we wrote, But the magic of cure we bring into scope, Some may think we will be shopkeepers of medicine stores, But they don’t know or will, We are ruler of your breath and On our medicine, lifeless to get hope to live..
