I've both lived and live through the essence of this poem. As senior citizen ,visits to my board certified urologist put me in the doghouse vis a vis all things penis and bladder related. I'm sure that man of four hundred and fifty years ago only WISHED he had a board certified urologist attend to his private matters.

In salute to achievements in science, medicine and poetry, kudos to all board certified poet-urologists of this world.

Loved this! And just think of how many of these sayings show up in the lyrics of the Great American Songbook.
Come blow your horn - Frank Sinatra thanks to Sammy Cahn & Jimmy Van Heusen (and Neil Simon)
I'm Cooking with Gas - belted by Nancy Walker in her solo "I Can Cook, Too" in ON THE TOWN, lyrics by Betty Comden & Adolph Green.
Really terrific memories, thank you.
