  Running full steam ahead
Alarms beeping, Lights buzzing
Trays to pass, people to feed
Running full steam ahead
Alarms beeping Lights buzzing
A call for help over your radio
Running full steam ahead
Alarms beeping lights Buzzing
Someone needs to use the bathroom, someone needs coffee, someone needs sugar
Running full steam ahead
Alarms beeping, Lights Flashing
Need those vitals need those weights
Running full steam ahead
Alarms beeping lights flashing
Charting to finish, barrels to empty
Don't forget to give report
Running full steam ahead
Alarms beeping Lights buzzing
Oh and have it done by 2 o'clock please
Running full steam ahead
Alarms beeping lights buzzing
Running full steam ahead
Alarms beeping lights flashing
Running full steam ahead
Alarms beeping lights buzzing
This is the day in the life of a
CNA

i m paraprofessional in a grade school.not only do we run around,do all the nose wiping and huggingbut we are also not considered very smart! i am smart because i get to do all these important things. just like you,,think of how much pleasure you bring!Cleanliness and food and comfort! Mother teresa always stopped by the ditches to help a dying peron. when asked why she said because i can! thanks for your poem and your hard work
