Three adorable little men

Dance across the TV screen

Their faces are the cheeriest you've ever seen

They break into song

"There's a new pill for you

Even if nothing is wrong

Just ask your doctor

To prescribe it  STAT

It may cause cancer

It may kill you dead

But tell your doctor

This is what the men on TV said:

You really really

 *need* another med!

So true and very funny, Gina! Thought provoking too ... could the solution be that we take our health and well being in our own hands? Love and best wishes, Li

it's always nice to see you my dear, my wife always says I need to get another doctor because mine just don't get it, your cool creative verse reminded me of this, hugs

Half the time they forget to tell us what it's for but of course we need it. Right? :)

Reviewed by Leslie Garcia 4/27/2009
Insightful and witty...some commercials make cute graphics out of the warnings, which sound much worse than the illness--but still, the prescriptions come.

Reviewed by Carmen Ruggero 4/27/2009
With the pharmaceutical companies pushing dope on TV, who needs drug pushers on the streets, eh? I am just as disgusted about it. Nice to find you again! :-)

People want to live forever now, and comfortably too, there seems to be a pill for everything, even the side effects ha,
A witty way of saying what you did. Hugs! Jasmin Horst

I do see a lot of ads on TV these days for pills; I guess people must be buying them.

Take care

Cleverly expressed, Gina. And what you "say" is a sad truth about today's society. Love and best wishes,
