And who are you,
to dispense advice?
You, the apothecary for love?
It seems to me,
you dole out the pills,
you would never swallow yourself.
Shamefully hiding behind your counter,
laughing at customer's expense;
wearing that white coat,
pretending all is well in
your alchemist's lab.
But I know you for who you are,
for what you are.
While you mock the disease and me
for contracting it,
at least I have courage to seek the cure.
At least I have hope.
While you stand there in your plastic smile,
talking and smiling so sweet,
telling others their lives are so dowdy,
I look further inward.
And what I see, is a man with no remedy,
for the same thing that ails him.

ahhhhhhhhh..I feel soooooooooo much better now...

Barbie, this is a wonderful vent/rant. I love the way that you wrote it. It would also fit real druggists; I often wonder when getting a prescription filled if the pharmacist ever takes the same medicine that he is filling for me. Great Job on this one!

Only an artist knows what it's like to get it all out in this manner. Writing can be such a cathartic. An Exlax for the mind. jp
