Drugging - Poem by Jon Edward Walker

I read this story in the newspaper
about a daycare
feeding kids cough syrup
so they’d sleep all day
so as not to bugger the adults
serious convictions came down upon their heads
I think

as adults however we willingly
heavily medicate
ourselves
with alcohol, weed
prozac or other drugs
so as to not bugger the other adults
no one punishes us however
except ourselves
