We have pills to make us sleepy
And pills to keep us awake.
Drugs to sooth us when weepy
And a placebo is simply a fake.
There is pharma for all kinds of ills,
Even drugs that treat other drugs.
We bombard our bodies with pills,
Devolving to over-dosed slugs.
We make drug companies quite rich
As our health declines to poor.
And they couldnft give a stitch,
Since none look for a cure.
Cancer is still a widespread sin
And diabetes so much more.
Plenty of meds to battle and win,
But nothing to win the war.
The day a drug firm makes a med
That ends a disease for all time,
Is when their CEO goes off his head
And commits a Marketing Crime.
So through all suffering from bad to worse,
One fact we must never forget.
Pharmaceuticals are a business first,
Who profit without regret.
Remember when you take a pill for that,
Another for the other, and a 3rd to help this.
There was a time when home cures did combat
Against our ills nearly as well with hardly a miss.
Now someone makes a convenient pill
And home remedies are forgot.
Of course it wonft cure what makes you ill,
But it really helps a lot.
Medicine mania makes our modern day.
We take meds that make us sick and others that will treat
The condition, or so our Doctors say.
Why in our healthcare is there no med that will cure complete?
Don't wonder too much about it, as this may give you a headache.
For which there are several pills available, even some prescription meds.
