Granny's Tonic

Oh the daily news got to her But; she couldn't turn away It was like watching a train wreck Though it made her nerves so frayed Each night she turned the tv on And her head began to pound Politics, crime, and taxes Made her feel like coming unwound Anxiety kept her up at night This old world is such a mess She decided that she must do something To cure herself of stress A cup of tea is what she needed So she headed to Cumberland Gap In search of the wild blue flower The Cherokee Skullcap Now she still watches the news each day And laughs a bit at the moronic For it no longer drives her mad Thanks to her Appalachian tonic
