Break Me Off

Written by: Nestor David Armas

Oh no
It's wearing off
The high
From yesterday
Is draining away
Rain gutters clean
No longer hold it in,
Need another
Larger dose,
Need to up
The rations
The morphine drip,
Refill my prescription;
Doctor says
An overdose
Would actually
Do me well,
So what do you say?
Break me off
A bigger rock next time?
Ease my trembling hands...
