Glad you enjoyed. This one was inspired by a conversation I overheard at work -- a really nasty editor yelling at her kid on the phone (real morale raising!), followed by her talking to her friend after slamming down the phone that she needs to start putting ritalin in the kid's peanut butter. I loved that phrase so much I had to use it in a poem, and since my brother has severe ADD (he's a great kid, tho! ), I know from personal experience about ritalin.
People always like the easy way out. That's why we're always "in pursuit of happiness." We want to feel good all the time. Who wants to reflect? Who wants to deal with life's messages in a mature way when they come alone? Just pop down some pills, f___ your troubles away, and try not to think about the side effects (I'm sure there's pills for those, too -- until you're basically ingesting the rainbow )
And as to why I have so many posts today: c'mon, I gotta do SOMETHING constructive with my weekend.
