Prescription Leaflets (Another very silly poem)

Read this leaflet carefully

Before you take the pill.

This is most important

If yourself you're not to kill.

A course at Oxford Uni

Might help you in this task.

Perhaps in advanced Latin

Why so?.....Don't even ask.

How to take your medicine

And most important where

Most will go into your mouth

But others shoved elsewhere.

As you read on further

Terror starts to strike.

Good gracious all those side effects

This surely can't be right.

Don't panic though, the company

Protects itself from woe.

If you start to grow another head

They can say "I told you so".

(I'll go and get my coat now.)
