Doctor’s Orders

Lieberman Won't Take His Medicine

Image by via Flickr

I feel a buzz as the gunk goes down,
swirling and zigzagging as it reaches the sounds
of my gurgling stomach and the juices there found.
Slipping and sloshing it flips and it slops–
(The doctor said take it all โ€˜til the very last glop).

Oh, that was rough, tastes like paint thinner stuff–

But the germ is a bad one, or so I was told,
and it must be eradicated by this vile, purple funk.
For ten whole days, I must be tortured and bothered
while trying my best not to be a hothead.
But wait just a minute, I remember the trick–
A pinch of my nose and Iโ€™ll soon be un-sick!

  1. hope its not your health you are talking about! If it is not then its a funny one, if it is, then why did not you told me that you were unwell?


  2. No, not about my health. I’m perfectly well–thanks.

    Just a funny poem today. ๐Ÿ™‚


    • happy to know that. loved the poem more now. ๐Ÿ™‚


      • Good. Just felt like doing something silly. ๐Ÿ™‚


      • it was hilarious. ๐Ÿ™‚


      • See, now you can enjoy it more knowing that I wasn’t writing about myself being sick. I’m glad that you’re relieved. I didn’t mean to alarm you. ๐Ÿ™‚


      • it is really fun to read. it reminded me of childhood days when we were fed a horrible tonic called cod liver oil- that thing was horrible, horrible, horrible!!!!


      • I never had to take cod liver oil but I heard how horrible it tastes! Poor you…


      • it not only tastes horrible, its stinks like fishes, it was horrible to the power n.


      • Wow, that’s really horrible! I’m so glad I never had to take it. ๐Ÿ™‚


      • we had to swallow it for years. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
        now it is sold in form of capsules.


      • Well, I feel so sorry for you having to have gone through that but maybe that’s why you enjoy such good health today. Now people are touting the health benefits of fish oil but, like you said, they are in nice little tasteless capsules.


      • yes. even then i wish they sold them in capsules when i was a child. ๐Ÿ™‚


      • You poor baby. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

        What was that stuff given to children for anyway?


      • the drug companies praise it to no end. i dont know about the authenticity of their words, they say it works wonder for skin, hair, eyes and resistance power. Dad also said the same. So it certainly was good for kids i guess.

        you know, you will have a solid laugh i know, i used to feed it to misha, and she relished it to the core.

        she used to lick the last drop of the syrup from her plate. yuck!


      • Well I think that doctors today must find that some of those “home remedies” really have some good merit to them. Unfortunately, you had to start taking that stuff before they invented capsules to put it in so you wouldn’t have to be tortured by the foul taste.

        That is too funny that you fed it to your dog. But of course he would love a nice fishy treat! Hahaha! Cute. xoxo


      • yes thats funny, misha was crazy about fish. she started to refuse eggs when she was a bit old, so i used to prepare a fish stew type of thing for her, fish and green vegetables boiled together, and give it to her with rice, she just adored it.


      • What a nice diet, Misha had and how nice of you to make such good, healthy food for her. ๐Ÿ™‚


      • well i was supposed to be doing that ๐Ÿ™‚


  3. Funny and clever. Thanks for giving us a smile. Much appreciated.


  4. I will join in on the wonderful silliness but must say, was curious about “a pinch of nose” remedy! ๐Ÿ™‚


    • Oh, yes, it’s a very ancient remedy, Lahn. Just keeping your nose pinched can aid in all kinds of maladies! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thanks for visiting.
