Chemical Cosh

Under the cosh

We ain’t livin’


That you’re givin’

Slide the needle in

Butt or shoulder

Time release

I thought depots were for buses


There’s no fusses

“Take him down!”

In goes the stimulant

And a million neurons

Get nuked.

The chemical cosh

Is revealed not in

Its constituent ingredients

But in the circumstances

Of its administration.
