A Dose of Castor Oil
A dose of castor oil was once the trick
our fathers often said we must imbibe.
Then gagging does embrace the mucous thick
as down it goes so foulness may not thrive.
A stuttering, red evil here is strewn
as AR Fifteens shatter all the love.
We need an antidote from heaven-hewn
yet no such medic issues from above.
Oh, world of endless joy and ruthless pain,
we’re crying out ; please send a cure for us
before dead children drive us all insane;
before this globe and hope is turned to dust.
Yet, comes no answer for our sickened sighs
or family of man. Cold blood defies.
