  • A Hard Pill to Swallow

    Xarelto, Xanaax, Eliquis and Viagra.
    Otezla, Xantax, Prevnar and Humira.
    Warfarin, Prevnar, Chantix and Farxiga.
    Prevacid, Celebrex, Otezla and Victoza.

    The promise of relief in a little pill.
    If the disease doesn't get you the side effects will.
    If you've got a headache take a few Advil.
    The thirty second commercial from a druggie shill.

    A four hour erection, call your doctor at once.
    For your protection, you think they have a hunch?
    Do not take this pill if problems with your liver.
    And when you get the bill, your heart and head will quiver..

        Your sense of humour in this poetry is rather well put together and quite descriptive. I have no idea how you pull it because I have never heard of such terms like humira,farxiga, my life before but you sure did nailed it...thumbs up

                          Hahaha, great write, BDB. I watched a commercial like this just yesterday. The woman with the angel's voice went on for an eternity describing the potential side effects. No one in their right mind should put that thing in their mouth!

                            I often feel like this when I see these commercials!
