Take A Pill - Poem by Stanley Cooper

Your throat is sore and has you coughing
And what's more, you're sneezing too
When feeling better's not in the offing
Here's what you must do
Take a pill

Your fever's high, you're feeling flu-ish
You're gonna die, of that you're sure
It's got you down, your feeling blue-ish
How will you endure?
Take a pill

It's enough to cause conniptions
Your rapid pulse is running fast
You better fill your Doc's prescriptions
If you are to last
Take a pill

When you're ill, you'll surely get through
Though your health has ill defects
Just make sure the pills don't get you
With their side effects
Take a pill?

Pills don't seem to get Docs doze-y
When prescribing you those pills
Doctors seem so fit and cozy
Collecting all your bills
Take a pill?

There's got to be a better way
Like being more preventive
To keep those Doctor bills away
A comforting incentive
And..no more pills
