Editor’s Note: The author writes, “After 45 years in internal medicine, cardiology and epidemiology, I currently mentor trainees and junior faculty in research. Today the evidence-based advice of august medical panels is often disregarded by internet-savvy Americans. This irony led to my poem, ‘Medicine Yesterday Today.’”

When medicine was faith and
doctors killed with lancet, leech
and quicksilver yet claimed the
accolades due to Nature and
Nature's God, how happy they
were to have us.
Now medicine is fate, saying
the rosary from the DNA with
computed confidence and
impressing with risks in numbers
and elegant bodily invasions that
give life. Why now do
they begin to doubt us?
