Might you feel anxious? Stressed? Tired? Depressed?

Everybody feels that way, but here’s the quickest fix…

Drugs! Take drugs! Take one, or two, or three!

In case you start to worry, just look at my degree. 

Can’t you see? I’m credible, 

A pharmacist, I know!

Take the meds I give you, unless you want to go back to feeling, 

I mean, unless you want to go back to feeling bad

Now don’t you worry, these side effects are natural, 

Gosh, what you felt before I helped those were so unnatural.

 

No, the drugs aren’t working, they never really did…

One in five Americans are targets of these fibs.

Rest assured I will fight back, I want to feel glad. 

Might you feel anxious? Stressed? Tired? Sad? 

All those feelings are normal, they will pass with time.

Life may be tough now, but you’re not yet in your prime!
