Two Pill Packets


Two Pill Packets
Oil on gessoed board
150x150mm

I came up with this little ditty to be sung to a 12 bar blues riff.
Oh I got the serotonin
reuptake inhibitor-blues!
Said I got the serotonin
Reuptake inhibitor-blues
Those pesky neuro-transmitters
Are to damned slow to pass da news!
So I went down to the doctor
Said these pills don't work no more!
Yeah I went down to the doctor
Said doctor please! These pills dont work no more!
And the doctor he done tol' me
"Just hit your head against de floor!"

  1. Well I must say you are quite the poet!! I read this with a guitar and harmonica riffing away in my mind. A man of many talents!

    Oh c'mon now babyyy
