i wrote this my senior year for a class assignment to use the color pink. so the first thing that was pink that came to mind was that stupid pepto bismol and how much i hate a stomache ache.

 Oh how i 

dislike a stomache ache

for the only medicine

for me to take

is that dreadful

pink liquid

that eases my


yet causes more

this liquid is found 

within a bottle

and it comes in

two very destinct flavors

and two destinct colors

cherry and its usual bland

tasting pink

this liquid is

pepto bismol

its pink coloration like

bubble gum

its scent reminds me

of candy

but its taste causes 

me scrunch up my

nose in distaste

for i don't know

how to describe

that bland liquid 

in anyother way

except please

oh please i hope

not to get anogher

stomache ache

Its complicated relationship between feeling better and drinking the medicine.

Strange, though whenever my stomach acted up, I always welcomed that thick, pepperminty flavor as it slid down my throat, eased the pain and soothed the burn.
