Once wired up to your bag of Taxol even nipping to the loo requires careful choreography.

Strictly Drip-stand

Dancing with a drip-stand, it 'aint easy;
its tubes and wires threaten to impede
attempts at forward motion; bloody-minded
it has five wheels so thinks that it should lead.

It helps a lot if you pick the right tune
for your vaguely ballroom progress to the loo,
something like a graceful waltz or foxtrot
(a Charleston, jive or quickstep just won't do).

There's just one more thing that you should remember,
to avoid an unexpected tango dip,
don't forget to take the damn thing's plug out,
before you set off upon your trip!
