Medication Sedation

We as a society

have become congenial

with the use of prescription drugs.

 

Some popping pills for cheap thrills

becoming addicted in the process

to the high it gives.

 

The youth mixing codeine, soft drinks and candy

because their favorite celebrity says it’ll make

them feel magnificent.

 

Doctors selling their Hippocratic oath

” To First do no Harm” away for the right

price it’s a wonder how they sleep at night.

  1. This is really powerful, I love the way you build to the last stanza:

    “Doctors selling their Hippocratic oath

    ” To First do no Harm” away for the right

    price it’s a wonder how they sleep at night.”

    It’s very much a good question.
