Just as hard to swallow,
For while the taste is not as sour,
The tang is bitter still.
Gulped down with loads of water,
Difficult to toss it down,
The pill is jagged, rough and ragged,
Nothing can drown it out.
“Take your remedy so you get better”
A restless voice chant in my ear,
A little white pill will make it all better,
The pain will vanish… literally disappear.
Dependence anew will take its place
A comfort blanket to pull you through
For what could possible drown the blues
Quite like a sugarcoated pill or two?
