WHAT'S UP WITH THAT?

That August day

made me pray

for MERCY!

 

My head was pounding 

like a woodpecker on

a metal roof

 

Could hardly see

my eyes were strabismic

 

I reached...

 

in my disarranged

medicene cabinet

 

in my dim

bathroom

 

pulled out the first

pill box

my quavering hands touched

 

I squinted my confused eyes

to examine the fine print

 

It seemed to say Motrin

 

I swallowed a few pills...

 

Soon my mind was confused

like a two year old

trying to tie it's shoe laces

while jumping on a pogo stick

 

My hearing went backwards

like a man who sees a bear

and it's cubs

running straight at him

 

My sight was upside down

like a trapeze artist

swinging with a monkey

on a banana tree

 

I started screaming 

like a wild banshee

 

I heard the door 

swing open

 

then my husband's voice

came to life

 

"Wife what have you done?"

 

I could barely reply

"Took some pills for my head"

 

He grabbed the pill box

and read

 

Moronic

 

"What the F

a stupid pill?"

 

"Where did you find these?"

 

I replied, 

"In the medicene cabinet"

 

He read the warning label

Can cause:

dizziness

lack of sentence formation

feeling like you are someone else

and just plain stupidness

 

So he called 911

 

They said, "We have had a lot of calls about those pills

tonight. There is an antidote"

 

"Oh and do this fast because another side effect is

the side effects are contagious."

Nice bit of fantasy from the cabinet of Dr Caligari perhaps Lynn. Nice light touch for a subject that toys with our feelings somewhat!

Yeah a bit crazy. My son gave me a poetry assignment book. The assignment was to start with the opening that August Day and make up a medication that does not exist. That is where this came from lol
