Day seven

Day seven and I feel
   amazingly better
Can’t blame all my
   queasiness on pills
Cramps may have had
   something to do with it
And the jitters appear
   to have lessened
But soon I will up the dose
   to full strength
Oh what wonders await me
   at 50 milligrams
And am I happy this week
   because the bills are paid
And the checking account
   is not overdrawn
And vacation is finally
   within spitting distance
Or are the pills at work
   like busy little bees
   in my blood
