Pills, Pills, Pills

Dear Ontario Government

I want to thank you for paying for my pills

all my ARVs, narcotics, opiates and benzodiazepines

because I know that you mean well

because when you pay for my pills

it’s not about health outcomes, it’s about cheap thrills.

And what about my naturopathic and dental bills?

Can you pay my internet bill?

Can you make my housing affordable?

What about my cellular service provider bill?

Then maybe I could just chill

and I could actually get well.

I am sorry but it is true

and what does that say about you?

I would be so much better if you do

and I think you would be too.

Dear Ontario Government

thank you for paying for my pills.
