God bless America,
the only country that takes up
a mere 5% of the world’s population.
unfortunately, also takes in 50% of the world’s pharmaceuticals,
and 80% of the world’s prescription narcotics.
over the course of history trying to coin the phrase,
"We have turned the corner in the fight on drugs."
Because we policed the urban areas,
until the prison turned industry?
While subliminally blinding us
to the fact that the real drugs
aren't being peddled from dark skin, or long rap sheets.
But from white coats, with script books.
Reading scripts slipped in from drug representatives,
reppin' drugs newer to the scene
than many strains police have ever seen.
Yet - don't you D.A.R.E.
Get caught with bud, bro.
With a quarter of some green, dank, purp,
loud, stank, chron, work.
Because depending on the criminalized city you reside in,
you might end up in jail.
Kind of funny how a substance
legal in many areas of the world,
is a crime in "The Land of the Free,”
when an Adderall can be prescribed to a 9-year-old
who cries and is told "sit still!"
Because the parents
measure their patience by the milligram,
and that is A-OK?
Unless you have it and don’t have a script.
Then, it's a felony.
What script do you really need?
The one written,
or the one typed?
Or the one that might sound,
and be read a little like an actual script.
"Do you have Restless Leg Syndrome?
You might if you are suffering from:
boredom, sore muscles, tired feet,
breathing oxygen, not wanting to breathe oxygen,
But not having the energy to go on the walk
you so badly crave
and could actually proceed to go on
if you would just get your lazy ass up, and go!”
"Do you have Bipolar Disorder?
You may if:
you want to smile more, you catch yourself frowning,
sometimes you are happy and others...sad.
If you breathe oxygen,
if you are human.”
If you are human,
you know the power of the dollar.
And that green can even make HIV vanish
hard on men glued to commercials perfected by marketing geniuses.
Making them want stiffer, longer, harder -
As they weigh out the pros and cons of side effects
they would never face
until they're sucked into a commercial that made it
so easy to relate to.
"But He... She... Looks so happy now!"
If you made 2 billion dollars a year...
You would have the ability to employ the best in the business
at pulling eyes, ears, and dollars out of wallets
even faster than Uncle Sam.
Because guess what?
They own him too!
Side effects you may suffer from:
bloody stools, hives, cancer, Lymphoma,
from or not from the person you felt you needed to make your life
We are now so busy craving an easy fix,
tearing apart our well-oiled machines
for after-market upgrades,
that we are forgetting how much damage we are doing to ourselves.
Taking Alzheimer's medications with side effects of memory loss,
And anti-depressants that may spark suicidal intentions.
We now live in a world that has become comfortable
with a mindset of,
"I can pay to fix what's wrong with me."
besides being content
not taking the time to better yourself in a healthier way,
I would like to ask:
“What's wrong with you?”
If the answer is:
You don't know and you just want to seem as perfect
as the people in the ads you look up to,
Well maybe the things you should be adding up
It hasn't always been like this.
It should have never gotten like this.
But where else can you get rich off of exploiting emotions,
and weak minds all held up by a crutch of convenience.
So, God bless America.
But someone please help us...
We are sick.
