The dastardly psychiatrist.

I am a royal college shrink.
I am a doc with lots of ink.
At my peer-reviewed conference,
I can show kudos and rank,
By how many and what type of patients I have under my jurisdiction.
"I have 20 locked up."
"Well I have 50."
"Are yours forensic?"
At bedtime I think of how the nurses may be doing hand-over.
Soon it will be time for supper.
I know that I can tell a judge what to believe.
Do I have a specialist knowledge?
Or do I just have common sense, and a knowledge of meds?
