My Magic Stone - Poem by Alexander Coppedge

Your reach for aid, healer to assist you, act when you need a friend, it never had excuse of to do; say to you: they wouldn't come or stay.

Its care when you suffer, laid low, body joints throbs, its intent alleviation for you; steps having ease for aches: times head split from pain.

Friend is trusted doctor, act times you're displaced from normal, treatment for what disrupts; government relief: it provided in pill forms.

Warrior selected as back up, your wish, it to combat your challenges; days you'll have with fever colds: times when you diagnose yourself sick.

Pill in response take actions in you, it does not talk as it works, it chant during tasks, pill no views; lies spoken: a fact said in high schools.

Friend is a product, it made, part of a production, it's sold on market, cost to have it; no concerns pending its use: it is priced for wanting hands.

Happiness bringer, a pause from agonies, work to regain awe for you; it in will is to promote back joy: you to be free from pain's complaints.

Conqueror to end your drag in state, pits sucking energy, reaper to bury fatigue; pill as combative: face off of body parts operational twinges.

Pill is a solid formed from substances, science created had by you; organics, its not magic in its reality: a round stone given in appearance.

Armour it to shield, plug to stop inflecting hurts in you, pill a soldier on post, slayer of ailments; form aimed in blows: target your lames.

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

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

Companion well welcomed in your chamber, dead inside fingers, alive in inner body; law choice given in its okay: it's for numbing direct pain.

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

Fountain of Youth if it works, it gently dissolve into pieces entering body, regained love; its relax from your pain: pill care for you from your woes.

Pill illustrates its strength by combating illness, it gives to you sleep undisturbed to aid you when worried, gift of aid; you from stress: its anguish.

Pill in performance is to help body functions, a prescribed fact had, sealed by health care -in a plan; billed in law: pill by authority approved.

Government playing pusher to its citizens, no law in ill to them; pill joined substances compounded singular: pure to eyes in presented form.

Creation for accumulating dollars, mini- Frankenstein's monster swallowed; fear to inflictions: pill in water taken for fires inside you hold.

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

Poet's Notes about The Poem

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 to leave grown ups; feeling this threat: very rare for me to disobey. I saw a Blair salesman. His suitcase held TKO to my grand. Holy Text states God as our healer promising to wipe all tears; even end death: me as an adult wonder in views because we have science proclaims to patch. Who do I choice?
