Take Your Medicine
Sometimes pills are like happy dogs.
by Jette Blackstone
Swallow them down and they taste like puppy heaven.
Your rear begins to wag, your tongue hangs down
And you suddenly realize that there's nothing better
Than being close to someone you love, to this place called earth.
These pills can be addictive though and no one should
Have more than one or two at a time.
If you overdose on puppy dogs, you are in for trouble!
And here's what to do:
Never, and I mean never, sit down,
never grumble or frown.
Scratch on your chin, take off in a run
use high-pitched notes to sing about fun.
Get down real low, make the back of you high,
then jump in the air till your nose touches sky.
And once you've done this, you must do it again,
til your frown falls down to a slobber-filled grin.
Once the pill passes through, the puppy dogs fall asleep
And you must act like a human again.
But remember that puppy dog pills are powerful
Take heed and care with the bottle
never meant for children under the age of 53.
Beware of side effects and be sure to call the doctor
If you find you've grown a tail…or two.
