COMING OFF DRUGS

I wonder what you say when I tell

you that all is not as it seems.

 

I laugh when you tell me of your

downer but I laugh a lot

at things like that.

You know not

what true medications can do

to you.

How they can effect your mind

as truly as acid, as terminally as heroin

as fast as cocaine.

Bang!

Your face hits the ground, blood spurts

bright red in the disco lights of morning

bright black in the blue lights

of the flashing cars.

Side effects come from above

not below, they seem to think

God’s gift to a doctor of medicine

who have four years study

to effect the world with digital

science.
