NICEly misunderstood

This is a short poem that I have written in response to this recently published guidance:


NICEly misunderstood:

Perhaps I am not alone in feeling NICEly misunderstood.

NICE, dependent upon all available evidence
has prioritised [but is not ‘addicted’ to]
moneytised ‘evidence’

NICE, dependent upon all available evidence
has prioritised [but is not ‘addicted’ to]
the career paths of those who set the narrative
[follow the status, as well as the money]

dependence [and] addiction
may co-exist,
but they are not the same.

misunderstood
and NICEly so!
