do you live in an empire like i, that
denies its adults the right to use drugs
that it can’t control & in the same breath,
fills its children full of “medications”
deemed appropriate by psycho****ingmaniacs
who follow in B.F Skinner’s footsteps,
younger & younger children
like they are blank slates, empty
molds to be shaped as if they have
no personality of their own, as if they
have no right to exist outside
what the disgusting status quo would
like them to be,
little cogs grinding in the capitalist
nightmare, little conformist drones
shopping & working, shopping &
working, with no idea what it might
have been like if they hadn’t been
proudly pumped full of drugs
before they even had a chance to
because, you know, if a 3 year old
says “no” or throws a tantrum,
then they must be bipolar---they must
have aggression issues, they must
have ADD, they must be “broken” in
some way, so
PUMP EM’ FULL OF Seroquel,
PUMP EM’ FULL OF Risperdal,
PUMP EM’ FULL OF Vyvanse &
PUMP EM’ FULL OF
PUMP EM’ FULL OF Zyprexa,
PUMP EM’ FULL OF Concerta &
don’t hesitate to PUMP EM’ FULL OF
and what if your kid seems down?
what if your kid seems nervous?
what if your kid doesn’t laugh at your
****ing jokes or what if your kid
doesn’t like talking in front of a
class at school?
WELL THAT JUST CAN’T BE!!!
SO PUMP EM’ FULL OF Xanax,
PUMP EM’ FULL OF Celexa,
PUMP EM’ FULL OF Zoloft &
PUMP EM’ FULL OF Prozac,
PUMP EM’ FULL OF Lexapro,
Ativan, Desyrel & Cymbalta,
PUMP EM’ FULL OF
Wellbutrin, Valium, Effexor &
A.early diagnosis of children resulting in
prescribing of psychiatric drug.
B.doctors that diagnose are “discovering”
new disorders & “identifying” more symptoms
of old disorders.
C.pharmeceutical companies make more
drugs to “battle” the disorders “discovered”
by doctors who are on their payroll.
D.the rate of adult americans on psychiatric drugs
has continued to increase in the past 10 years,
filling the pockets of the pharmaceutical companies,
so if they can get them early---that is, to
diagnose a child with an “illness” that will need
a lifelong usage of a drug manufactured by
said pharmaceutical, then
YOU DO THE ****ING MATH
keep pumping your kids full of “legal” drugs
keep on pumping them &
admitting them to those clinics that start popping up
which are being opened specifically to deal with the
side-effects of those very same drugs.
