During my GP placement of this year a different GP to the one who normally taught us called us into his consulting room to see a lady with lung cancer and subsequent clubbing. He then suddenly sprung on us the challenge "Name me 17 causes of clubbing!". My colleugue and I fumbled around with some random suggestions, thrown by the acute onset of the task. We were well and truly embarrassed. As a result, I vowed to devise a way to force the causes of clubbing to stay in my head, and this poem (or rap) is the result. Ideally it would have been in the form of a video with a trendy, young rapper delivering it, but I'm right in the middle of exams and time is precious.
