Chemist’s pride

His prescriptions can be read only
By apothecaries at street corners,

The masters of doctor’s scribbles
With large size imagination about

Where letters slip away or lead to.
Law makes them capital intensive

The letters all in capital large size
Capital, they say in a Wodehouse.

Law makes it less labour intensive.
What a blow on a chemist’s pride.
