Sugar-coated lies, are lies nonetheless,
My stomach erupts, as they will not digest,
“Take this placebo and feel better for it!
(It’ll be your downfall, but I’m sure you’ll ignore it).”
“Be a good little patient, and knock back your meds,
I’ve upped your prescriptions, due to side effects,
(We’ve got you now, sucker, hypnotised and addicted,
A fiend for life, obedient… yet conflicted).”

This piece has multiple meanings. Yes, it can apply to the actual prescription and consumption of medications, but moreso, to things like society’s evermore subservient, conflicted, yet obedient demeanor. We often wait with outstretched arms, waiting for a solution to be placed in our hands, and when one is fabricated, we rarely even question its efficacy or safety.
A whole swathe of society are addicted to everything the Doc’s (whoever they may be) dish out, some people finally realise that there is much amiss with this course of treatment, but often cant find the strength to say anything, because of their reliance on their next fix.
I for one, am not content to sit with a belly full of lies, fed to me by others. If it feels wrong, I’ll say so, if after looking into things further, I finding damning evidence, I will speak up, for all of us, not merely for myself and my own interests.
The powers that be, however, want nothing more than to trap us in a sedated, medicated, rigid, inescapable regime, where we bow to their every whim. They will lie, cheat and steal to get us there, but the question is, will we continue to pop their pills, and condemn ourselves… or turn to natural remedies? I have chosen the latter, and I do not regret my decision one bit.
Love and Respect always,
