My Magic Stone - Poem by Alexander Coppedge

Friend to aid, it to assist you, when you need comfort, it never excuse of to do; say: they wouldn't come or stay.

Care when body suffer, your joints throbs, steps of ease for aches; alleviation: times head split from pain.

Companion is trusted, reacts when you're in displacement, treat what disrupts; its relief: them provided in pill forms.

Warrior as back up, combat for challenges, sad days you with fever colds; times you diagnose: yourself sick.

Pill act in you, it works, does not talk, chant in tasks, pill not a view; a lie spoken: a fact said in high schools.

Associate is made product, sold on market, cost to have it; no concerns pending use: its priced for wanting hands.

Happiness bringer, a pause from agonies, work to regain awe for you; will to promote joy: from pain's complaints.

Conqueror to end drag, pits sucking energy, a reaper to bury fatigue; combative for body: operational twinges.

Pill substances is a solid in form, created; organics, not magic in its reality: a round stone given in appearance.

Armour shield, plug to stop inflecting hurts, a soldier on post, slayer it of ailments; its form blows: target lames.

Doctor to heal afflictions, it works as if it thinks, combat grief; pill reacts in you: times teethes ache from pain.

Nurse comforts, explorer in sought answer; a rescuer to aid being found: preacher in aims restoring, you assured.

Its friendship you welcomed, dead in fingers, alive in inner body; choice given in okay: it's for numbing direct pain.

Your flight under guidance, hopes from sorrows' ocean; waves which pounds: a path from suffering nightmares.

Fountain to Youth works, it dissolve entering body, relax from your pain; pill care for you: release from your woes.

Pill strength combats illness, gives you sleep undisturbed, when worried, gift of aid; you from set stress: its anguish.

Help functions, it prescribed fact be had, sealed by health care -in a plan, it billed a law; pill by authority: approved.

Government playing pusher to citizens; join substances compounded singular: pure to eyes in presented form.

Creation it for accumulating dollars; mini- Frankenstein's monster swallowed: pill in water taken for fires held.

Comfort to mind - addiction, a crusader, companion there with you, world endeared; pill designed: it without a brain.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Note. A trusting healer: As a child under five, I held few interests about others doings about the house: except this one time. My sense of fear went off, and I ignored my grandmother wishes, me to leave grown ups; feeling this threat: very rare for me to disobey. I saw a Blair salesman. His suitcase held TKO to my grands. My grandmother was absorbed in soaps, 'I have head ache', mimics of TV actors. My grandfather getting ripped off cough syrup. Holy Text states God as our healer; promising to wipe all tears: even end death. I as an adult wonder in views; because we have science: proclaims to patch. Who do I choice?
Is it wise to play on top of the fence: one not taking neither side?
