Placebo

I had this annoying habit
I hate pills and getting sick is easy for me
so, I would collect them when no one was looking 

make a runny paste 
and then give it to the trees

I was a druid in my head
healing trees and plants 

I probably killed all the house plants 
I tell myself we are all gonna die either way 

my mom hates it 
she can see the pasty residue on the soil

she forces the pills down my throat 
I’ll end up in the hospital either way 
it’s no use 
I scream.

she tells me 
not before she ends up there 
what’s the point???
where is the sense?

we’d be taking pills 
for the things sick in this world
to be okay with it all

I’m not okay with this at all.
