TO TAKE OR NOT TO TAKE
THAT IS THE QUESTION:
This moring I paid the doctor a visit,
About my lack of sleep.
I explained that after an hour and a half.
I awaken from my sleep so deep.
The rest of the night I toss and turn,
Much to my dismay.
Then when it's time to rise and shine,
I could sleep the day away.
She gace me a prescription
For some pills to help I declare.
When I obtained them from the pharmacy,
I read the leaflet that was there.
It said "Do not take if you're Epiletic (I am)
Or if you have problems with sleep.
That's what I was given them for.
To regain my pattern of sleep.
Do not take if you have Arithitis (I do)
And take medication for the pain.
By now I was getting confused.
Do I have to return to her again?
I've come to the conclusion,
That the doctors know not of side effects.
Patients who don't read the leaflets,
Are surprised at the feelings they get.
So do I take or not to take?
I think not....well not tonight.
Reading the leaflet like I did.
Gave me one hell of a fright.
