poetry written by me

Take these for the pain
twice daily after eating
Take these for a headache
and these for your tired legs
Take these for a pain in the neck
in the mornings

Take these if you miss your train
And you can’t see the funny side
Take these if you suffer

Take these for loss
or a twinge in the heart
Take them in the evening
Stand by a window you can’t see out of
Take with water and look into the dark
For as long as you can bear

Take these for courage
Take a partner by the arm
Take half a pill each

Take these for free
I don’t know what they do
Try them for a pit in your stomach
or for you indecision and fear of flying
As for fear of dying
Take whisky
