Toxic Mental Space - Poem by Margaret Alice Second

Binge-watching episodes of House medical series
and speed-reading MedsChat letters from patients
learning Tamoxifen increases chances of deadly
endometrial cancer by 50% while it can also cause
painful, debilitating arthritis: Western medicine is a
hellish invention driven by the horrible conviction

Living is suffering to be FORCED on humanity at all
cost especially quality of life, just breathing painfully
is promoted & disfigurement and pain are toted as
gain - but I say NO THANKS: I prefer life short and
sweet, letting go as soon as my body can't continue
on its own & knowing the best preventative against

Painful medical intervention is lack of funds - I'm
going to spend my money on adventures not con-
sulting these quacks as I wish to die in peace when
my body succumbs to the toxic mental space we
self-defeating humans constructed for our race
