Oxycontin Success - Poem by Tim Caffery

Systematic despair
from a manufactured effect,
Delivered in a pretty pill
near impossible to reject,
Pitched by Doctors
for their profit,
While people are dieing
why don't we stop it?
An easy win
for the War on Drugs,
These pills aren't natural
just pull the plugs,
that push them out
(Enough so none
Will be without) .
If this were food
for the poor,
Instead of poison
that is at WAR,
With human life
and human health,
Making the makers
masses of wealth,
Then sell some more-
up production,
But we KNOW
this pill is destruction,
Of home and life
parent and child,
The ones dieing
all the while,
CEOs sit back
to observe,
How THEIR profits
are ahead of the curve,
The lesson they learn:
Make more pills,
No matter how many,
towns it kills.
