Sometimes when I am ill
I opt to take a pill
To alleviate my suffering

But I try not to read
Or indeed pay any heed
To the label on the packet or the tub

It’s not that I don’t care
Or that I’m unaware
That I should know the dangers of the drugs

But often I am vexed
To find within the text
A lengthy list of common side-effects

That only can confuse
And how am I to choose
Whether to stick or twist with my plight

The reaction could be worse
But I am not a nurse
So I don’t really understand the risks

It’s just better not to know
Instead go with the flow
And hope the good it does outweighs the harm

And I don’t know about you
But I find it’s rarely true
That a spoon full of sugar really helps
