HARD TO SWALLOW
 
I'm told I must, therefore I will
Consume this rather costly pill
They tell me that its' only mission
Is to improve my health condition
But in the box there is a statement
Listing more than pain abatement

The warnings there are cold and brisk
It seems that I might be at risk
For others forms of pain and stress
I am confused, I must confess
But doctors' orders I must follow
I close my eyes and bravely swallow

The deed is done- I wonder if
There is a pain in my midriff
My stomach feels a little queasy
Iíd best sit down and take it easy

The clock ticks on, Will I survive?
Itís hopeful, Ďcause Iím still alive
