Take too many
Wind up dead
Pills for mania, laughter – blue,
An inappropriate colour,
But what can ya do?
Pills for thyroid, goitre, shakes,
Bottle green like the bottom of lakes,
Pills for pain,
Black – red – pink,
Pills that can’t be mixed with drink,
Pills for anxiety, phobias, fears,
Like children’s ears,
Pills for dreaming, dozing, sleep,
Like counted sheep.
