“RECIPE FOR CHEAP HEALTH IN THE MODERN ERA.” a poem posted on Friday, 20 Sept. 2019.
Be (like) a cockroach; or, rather, ACT LIKE IT.
Like The Cockroach be healthy; so, it’s OK to just sit,
- – SIT FOR HOURS, NOT MOVING ANYWHERE;
The Trick? You gotta be ready to move 1000 miles an hour atTheFlickOfAhair.
- – TAKE YOUR “MEDS” (DON’T FORGET YOUR MEDS) EVER DAY;
And cockroach meds are SUGAR PILLS; come on now, DON’Tsay: “No way,”
‘Cause over and over tests show that sugar placebo(L)s,
Are as effective, yes, just as efficacious for peoples,
As $300 SUPER PILLS from your local Pharma.
Remember though: WASH THEM DOWN WITH LIQUID (like the cockroach);
You’ll have virtually NO karma.
And, with no karma, you’ll have no worries, happy as can be;
HAPPY AS A COCKROACH; just wait and see.
Oh, yeah, there IS ONE downside:
PeopleWillBeDisgustedWithYou (like Jesus and The Prophets),
So never, ever take a ride,
Over to The (bloody) (with the stench of death) Roach Motel,
Or get stepped on (like a bug); I also MUST tell,
You, therefore, to,
- – AVOID BEING CRUSHED OR CREAMED INTO A POULTICE;
So (re-capping): (1) Be ready to race, at a moment’s notice;
(2) Eat sugar, lots of sugar and down it, drown it with GoodOl’Water;
And (3) Avoid being crushed.
