Drug Lord

Drug Lord

Not Cloppy Doggerel
Keeps platelets from sticking
Aspirin does as well
Candy Staton, I call it
Maintains my heart in
Working order
On the borders 
Of health
Betas blocked by atenolol
Stomach soothed by lanzoprazole
Which works quite well with alcohol
(Not that I drink much at all
These days)
Races through my bloodstream
The fat in
There repaired
By Atorvastatin
I sleep, and, no perchance,
For dream I will
Nightmare on nightmare, 
And no idea which pill
The cause. Still
I wallow in pharmaceuticals

And swallow
