The Salvadore asked pharmacists on Twitter to get creative and compose a haiku for National Poetry Day on the 4 October using the hashtag #pharmacyhaiku — here are some of our favourites.

1. Think about the patient

Let’s think about care:
A patient at the centre,
“Hello, my name is…”

2. A spillage

I hear a smash and
pouring liquid, oh no its
clomethiazole!

3. On the dark side

I am clinical
Pharmacist, what about you?
Am I cynical

Take my advice please,
Crushing enteric tablets,
Won’t your G I ease.

This black and white pill
Poison or cure my sickness
Hope and fear in one.

Your siren call holds my heart
I am yours always

You don’t have the flu;
That is only a wee cold;
Come and get your jab!

Nuance lost in the shouting
Hurt some, others saved
