A row of bottles on my shelf
Caused me to analyze myself.
One yellow pill I have to pop
Goes to my heart so it won't stop.
A little white one that I take
Goes to my hands so they won't shake
The blue one that I use a lot
Tells me I'm happy when I'm not
The purple one goes to my brain
And tells me that I have no pain.
The capsule tells me not to wheeze
It helps me not to cough or sneeze.
The red one, smallest of them all
Goes to my head so I won't fall.
Such an array of brilliant pills
Helps to cure all kinds of ills.
But what I'd really like to know
Is what tells each pill where to go.
I wish that I could take credit for this bit of rhme, but unfortunately the kudos go to "anonymous." It really gave me cause to wonder what would happen to me if I stopped taking even one of my many pills. I counted them up and my total for the day is 22. Of course some of them I take two or three times a day. Mostly, my pills are spplements. The ones in this category are: Red yeast, which I take in place of Lypitor, because I couldn't tolerate it, garlic, calcium, magesium, fish oil, multiple vitamin, vitamin B12, grape seed and a baby aspirin. The four prescription ones are gabapentin for my nerve damage, avapro for blood pressure, isosorbide to dialate my blood vessels, and omeprazole to keep my heartburn in check. My golly, it's no wonder that the pharmaceudical companies are making SO MUCH money.
