Going down and trying to stay up, can get kind of corrupt, there maybe hope if it doesn't end abrupt.

Life can get very complicated
This is the reason some people
have to get medicated
This becomes medically implicated
then through the doctor initiated
Some people become so irritated
they can't help from being agitated
even the family may dictated

Then there are those who
self medicate
They can't even wait
for the local bar to open its doors
Later on the alcohol be flowing
from their pours
The next day they can't even
work or perform their chores

Others use serious drugs to
help them get by
Some overdose and even die
from getting too high
Too many complications is
the reason why
Sometimes it's hard to give
give a hoot
and not self pollute
After the jump there may be
no parachute
especially if one is destitute
