Title: Pill Popping

Pill popping, popping pills,
Give us highs, frees us from ills.
We’re all at it, down in one.
Just one gulp and it’s gone.

Pink for blood pressure, white for chills,
Ones with hearts on to give you thrills.
Round ones, long ones, capsules too.
Chew on this one – it’s good for you.

Pill popping, popping pills,
Give us highs, frees us from ills.
We’re all at it, down in one.
Just one gulp and it’s gone.

Take five times daily, what a chore
Through the night – to stop you snore.
This one with water, that one with food.
Don’t mix with alcohol – puts you in a mood.

Pill popping, popping pills,
Give us highs, frees us from ills.
We’re all at it, down in one.
Just one gulp and it’s gone.

Watch out for side-effects, if you can.
Was constipation part of the plan?
And addiction? Just grin and bare it.
A little angst to help you get fit.

Pill popping, popping pills,
Give us highs, frees us from ills.
We’re all at it, down in one.
Just one gulp and it’s gone.

Try this big one if you’re depressed.
It’s the one I like the best.
Not too sure about the rest.
I’m far too hyper to take them.

Pill popping, popping pills,
Give us highs, frees us from ills.
We’re all at it, down in one.
Just one gulp and it’s gone.
