As my age and ailments mount,
take more pills than I can count.
And when all is said and done –
can’t pronounce a single one.
I have lists with me I take,
so I don’t make a mistake,
if I’m asked to name the pills,
that I take for all my ills.
For those in charge who make a lot,
off conditions we all got.
I propose use “people names,”
sure works swell for hurricanes.
Bill and Fred and Mary Lou,
Jill and Ted and Peggy Sue,
Trish and Dean and Oliver,
even throw in Mortimer.
Make it easy for us chumps,
who navigate our living bumps.
For those of you who have disdain?
I prove my case with “Mary Jane.”
