Drugs and Drivers
Sinemet C R and Sinemet plus,
Made from the Leva and Dopa for us.
Carba with Dopa will help it along,
Into the Nigra where Neurons aren’t strong
Mix with some water a Madopar pill,
Leave it an hour or you will be ill.
Don’t have your breakfast to close to this tab,
It makes you sickly and surely not fab.
Maybe an Aspirin is also required,
To stop your ticker becoming expired.
Also in water and dissolving fast,
This little beauty will make your heart last.
Taking some blocka’s of Beta design,
Stops all these tremors and earthquakes of mine.
Pink in their colour and shaped like a wheel,
These little rascals have plenty appeal.
Transdermal patches are stuck anywhere,
Releasing Dopa so slowly I hear.
Agonist dopa from Rotigotine,
Stick them secretly where they cant be seen.
Permax and Requip are Agonists too,
Making us do things we don’t want to do!
Gamble your money or sex every way,
Eating for England or shopping all day.
Mirapex tablets are top of the list,
Suing the Pharma’s for warnings they missed.
I’m not forgetting the Cabaser drug,
Ingest this tablet and give death a hug.
All of the Neurons inside of our brain,
Looking for Dopa to lessen the strain.
Electric impulse is getting so weak,
Neural receptors are having to seek.
Movement disorder and Neurology,
This is a science. How hard can it be?
Grey form of matter with wireless cells,
Just like computers but surely not Dells!!
Desk tops and note books have large memories,
Storing our secrets that nobody see’s
Humans act slowly and sometimes we crash,
Banished to Limbo for acting too rash.
Erring is human but computers lie,
Telling me errors in scripts just gone by!
‘Send this to Windows’ it says on the screens,
I didn’t do it- if that what it means.
K bytes and programmes or Microsoft word,
Scanners and printers from Intel the 3rd .
Internet options connect by Wi-fi,
Engines for searching with volume up high.
Processing numbers at frightening speed
Spell checks and ‘save as’ are things that we need.
Formats and tables are used now and then,
Thank Bill for Puters and not for the pen.
This is a lifeline to us every day,
Showing some treatments or gossip per say.
Poems or chatter, there’s room for it all,
If you are lonely just give us a call!
These verses are as apt today as they were back then!
Great poem. Your second verse had me laughing. I have just taken a madopar tablet and done all the things you say I shouldn't! I
HI Lin ......I see you are still the 'Queen of Verse' around here. You should never listen to what a poem advocates, especially one penned by me!
Great poem, like a giggle.
Another.brilliantly worded verse putting everything as it is. Thank you
Thank you farhills for your encouragement.
