Leave it to the news to tell me that the drugs don’t work.
Just after I’ve consumed a dozen of them,
and have warned my pain of what lies in store for it.
The Food and Drug Administration says that I’ve been misinformed.
And while I’m at it, no shampoo in all of Christendom will save my hair.
The FDA has just begun to prick all my balloons.
They inform me that a man can’t resurrect old love just by listening to a song.
And when I look deep into a painting, I’m not in touch with some artist’s soul.
It’s all just paint. Lick it and you die.
The FDA adds that its chemists have spent years attempting to validate
the meaning in my life
but the results so far have all proved negative.
In fact, they’re closing the book on this one.
They recommend drugs. Then they tell me the drugs don’t work.
