This poem is dedicated to the psychotropic medication soap opera that many of us have faced. Bipolar medications are very specific and often a method of trial and error, and most usually a frustrating adventure. My loving (and very patient) wife helps manage my medications, which I am eternally grateful for! Anyway, I wrote this little poem with the world of meds in mind.
Little pills just like candy,
Gagged and bound, forgotten code.
Simple thrills and what they would be
Altercations a la mode.
Sweet and salty syndication
Reclaimed a garter at the seams.
Climb the ladder’s big sensation
Pharmaterror sugar dreams.
