rainbow of pills

to summarise:

to lessen the pain
you must take
this pink pill

three times a day
with food

and to stop
potential damage
caused
by the
pink pill
you must take
this
yellow pill

once a day
do not take
antacids
while taking
this medicine

and because
the pink pill
won’t really
kill the pain

pain killers
are so wrongly
named

you must take
these white pills
which
while making you
feel warm and nice
and forgetful
of the pain
may also make you
drowsy

if affected
do not drive
or operate
machinery

and why not
have some
tiny blue pills
throw a handful
in at night
they may
or may not
help
but worth a try
despite
the overwhelming
arid desert dryness
they may cause
and how desperately
you may gulp down tea
with every morning
wakening

not to mention
the other
unmentionables

no more than
five pills
to be taken
at night

and perhaps
eventually
you’ll get that
x-ray
and some
physio
but in the meantime

congratulations
you are now
a fully certified
rainbow-pill-popper
