FREE CEE take a kill pill

            TAKE A KILL PILL

dear mr. lobbyist I have something to say unto you
I want to discuss the job you do
you line your pockets to legalize a pill
completely disregarding the poor souls it just may kill

have you seen the ads millions of people see?
they run them 1,000 times a day on T.V.
The ads that promise to make people feel better every day
but they phrase them in a particularly deceptive way

the announcer vows that the pharmaceutical will cure a dreaded disease
or instantaneously lower your high temperature by four degrees
they swear your child's whooping cough will be ended by tomorrow
or mitigate a depressed person's sodden sorrow

so now you drive a brand new Lexus and can even afford the gas
all because you get potentially lethal drugs to pass
and it's no wonder you have a hot wife twenty years younger than you
all because of the illicit things you do

These wonder drugs are sworn to save your life or end your pain
and rid yourself of that wheelchair and/or ivory tipped cane
So now you have a new Lexus and a great looking wife
but on the screen in small letters  it reads “this drug could help or end your mortal life”
