Pushin Pills

Pushin Pills

A Chapter by Dave Brown



The endless pills that I take

Are givin me an awful jaw ache

In fact, I hafta take em’ so offen

I don’t have time to do enny coff’in


Just got phoned by my local MD

Who now I rarely get to see

Saying that chocolate cake I love

I’ll now have to get rid of


Instead, it is unbuttered toast

That my belly will havta host

And I still hafta leavea buncha room

For endless pills I constantly consume


My hair growth pill works like a charm

Altho’ my barber won’t cut underarm

And every morn’s vitamin D

Resurrects each bone inside of me


One for my eyes, one for my liver

One making my limbs reduce their quiver

One for my arthritic neck and back

Another for a threatening heart attack


My hip joints and knees are awful weak

My jawbone tends to crack and squeak

I need bifocals to identify my bride

However my head only throbs on one side


Where the needle is always stuck in

It’s band aids now instead of real skin

And with so much blood comin out

My corpuscles haven’t been hangin about


Now at bakeries, I can no longer look

Sweets and wines have got the hook

But I think that Doc had his gall

So, I’ve ripped the phone out of the wall
