This is going to hurt…

Medieval physicians, as history teaches,
Would bleed all their patients with razors and leeches.
They’d give you a physick to balance your humours,
Perhaps a live rat to eradicate tumors.
Barbaric techniques, and yet all of them pale
When compared to our present-day torture — the scale!
