Take two, call in the morning

Drugs like anger and toxin like pills Flashing from the side of the ditch. Holding out the rain, trying so hard to rot whatever it touches. Curses to the sun that drying *****, flooding the world with her harsh light. Waking all the thinking neurons. Firing together, they hold the promise of death. Drugs like anger and toxin like pills Fast drain the clear expectancies of family, borrowed sanity with debts to pay forming alliances, with reverence for some, placation for none. Cairns long erected will go down for sure tumble or crumble the directions are set, no fanatic speeches will stop the flow of the rotting water It will saturate the sills on all the windows. Drugs like anger and toxin like pills Pity the sap still runs. The corn yet grows; where death counts twice and admires your consumption.

It's so true that anger rots our world. Well, that is what I got from this poem. And those with certain anger issues, certainly DO need to take two pills (prescribed by Doctor!!)
