BiPolar Med Bets

Seroquel made me sleep and gain weight,
 Abilify constantly made me pace,
 But Paxil made me lose my cool,
 Plus talk too much like a fool,
 And Geodon gave me insomnia of late...

So either fattened up in a grog,
 To the point of being a hog,
 Or join the forced march,
 Which is so very hard,
 All to save others from my lot,

Or get enraged at the drop of a hat,
 With suicide listed as a side effect,
 Or have peculiar ways, 
 Because of twenty-eight hour days,
 To save myself Bi-Polar wrecks.

I am tired of all of this,
 I get angry and have fits,
 I've never been more unsure,
 Since I sought a simple cure,
 Yet I am told to keep on it.

It was not this bad before,
 These medicines these horrors,
 Being led to the slaughter,
 Told always I oughta,
 Keep this regimen enforced.

I am starting to think of ending it all,
 Medicating the stallion in the stall,
 Just release and be free,
 To be the me I want to be,
 Keep the men in white coats on call.

No this is really serious,
 It really makes me furious,
 They give me pills untrusted,
 I continue to get busted,
 So what good does it do for us.

I'd rather have the happy and sad,
 Than be forced either way instead,
 Because non-stop happy is dismal,
 And sleeping my whole life abysmal,
 I'd rather have what I once had.

To give respect and to be respected,
 Rather than constantly corrected,
 To be treated by others the same,
 Bi-Polar is not part of my name,
 I don't need to always be inspected.

My medicine hides my I.Q. of 156,
 I sold estates, businesses, and insurance,
 Corporate, computer and business Guru,
 I've done much more than any of you,
 Yet I'm still seen as the retarded kid,

All of these meds I have taken,
 Made me worse than I had been,
 So off these dastardly pills I go,
 As soon as I am free to do so,
 For only then will I finally be free.
