** A Pill For Every Ill ** - Poem by ANJALI SINHA

He gullibly ate the fake food
Thinking that its quality was good.

Labeled with a bogus hologram
Food’s packing too was sham.

Taking that food he took ill
And was unable to move at will.

Then he was prescribed fake drug
By the doctor who was a thug.

In spite of that he was healed,
Coz his faith in food, doctor and pill

    In some witty lines and interesting verse, the author is trying to convey, I think that well being and health may be aquired without the illusive pill.

    Vis Medacartix Natura is the best and ‘tailor-made’ doc ever produced.

    Anjali, You are superb as ever.

    Yes, Faith is a great cure
    In faith Meera poison endured
    But here you have great dig at pill
    Many a people these pills kill
    I heard FDA had strict control
    Spurious pills don't take their toll.

    It is the mental health which always contributes to physical health.A fit person will be sick if anxieties and mental agonies prevail and on the contrary a sick can overcome a lot with belief and cheers as portrayed by you.Very nice, concise and wise. (Report) Reply
