The question should be, to sedate or not to sedate...I go with sedation, but...

To sedate…


hard to concentrate,

     is my fate…


which may or may not be great,

but never do I get my drugs very late,

if so, my attitude does certainly grate…


Thorazine does create,

an effect that of a shuffle,

not unlike one carrying a heavy weight,

not much is said, as the drug also muffles,

the brains ability to speak of the truffles,

that were used to make the drug,

          go down smooth…


valium on the other hand,

makes one sleep like the dead,

best to do that if you’re,

looking to get a tan,

on the sand,

just be “shore” someone rolls you over,

so on both sides, you get an even crisp,

or to let you know when the sea,

is taking over the land…


But I think I will just have to wait,

and get high on my favorite smoke,

that way I won’t need anyone to poke,

to make sure I am still able,

To take another toke…
