Side Effects


 This drug may cause nausea,

Sleepless nights, euphoria, irritation, slurred speech

Blurred vision, dizziness, grand delusions, mass confusion

Puffy eyes, swollen glands and heart palpitations

Whether lethal injection or encapsulated ingestion

You are instantly released in my blood stream

Unlike your typical over the counter medicine

This has no expiration date

On the brink of overdose

Wish I had read the warning labels

Plastered so boldly on the packaging

It’s damaging, but there has been no recall

Because everybody can’t get enough

Pushing rationality aside

For a mere imitation

Who cares about the side effects

When you’re getting instant gratification?
