Emotional Deficiency

your love is a placebo . . .
in need of a transfusion . . .
a bag of o positive required . . .
only plasma available . . .
kool-aid . . .
that freezes in the veins . . .

hypochondriac symptoms . . .
too much saline . . .
affecting the tear ducts . . .
a genetic flaw passed . . .
from generation to generation . . .
a malignant cell . . .
called selfishness . . .
a second diagnosis called vanity . . .

herbal remedies . . .
infected the family tree . . .
so severe branches fell . . .
developing fractures that didn’t heal . . .
ovaries scattered, sperm spilled . . .
never to be seen again . . .
there are no sutures . . .
to repair the deep scars . . .

longing for a cure . . .
refusing treatment . . .
infecting the brain with insanity . . .
spreading this heartless disease . . .
blaming health care . . .
for your genetic malfunction . . .
here’s a pill . . .
to treat . . .
it won’t cure . . .
and may cause . . .
a quick fix . . .
with long-term effects . . .

won’t change a thing . . .
daily injections . . .
weekly infusion . . .
for the infected . . .
who has a high tolerance . . .
for the pain . . .
that is contagious . . .
to those not quarantine . . .
