Medication (Middle) Management

In the Year of Our Lord 2006

life these days
it’s like playing baseball
with a bowling ball
our fast-food hands too fat to finger the holes

Google eyes bigger than our broadband stomachs
we consume & are consumed
natural born leaders of the free world
waterboarding the truth

& more money won’t make me happy
more sex & violence won’t make me happy
retail therapy won’t make me happy
only selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors make me happy

life these days
it’s like playing xylophone
with the Rolling Stones
at the Super Bowl halftime show

homeland security
homeland security
can’t take your seat on the plane
without spreading for security

& more customer service won’t make me happy
more booze & boobs won’t make me happy
my twelve-step program won’t make me happy
only selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors make me happy
