Hey little girl, I’ve got something you need.

A pill to make you pretty, oh yes indeed!

Just one taste and you’ll be mine

Your head will spin, you’ll feel so fine!

I’m cunning, baffling, and powerful too.

I’m bigger than life and smarter than you.

I’ll tell you things that aren’t even true

For me there isn’t anything, you won’t do.

At first, I’ll be your very best friend

I’ll love you to DEATH – till the very end

I’ll steal your thoughts, but you won’t know

It’s no longer you who’ll be running the show

Your life will change right away

You’ll wake up wanting me, every day.

People will tell you to leave me alone

But you won’t listen, for you I own

No one else can interfere.

For if they do, they’ll pay dear

I won’t settle just for you, I want your entire family too

I’ll steal their finances and peace of mind

I make them hopeless, broken, and no longer kind.

For its greed and hate that make me tick

I’ll feed you blame and resentment, to make you sick

It’s really easy, you should see

I’m amazed no one catches on to me.

They build me shelters and safe injection sites

Seems me killing you, really is my right

But you won’t know that, not at first

Our relationship builds, for me you’ll thirst

I’m the plague, I’m death. I’m immoral and cruel

You’ll give me your life – oh what a fool.

What starts out as fun, quickly disappears.

I’ll age you faster than your years

Your looks will change, your eyes will cloud

As I wrap you in my deathly shroud.

You dance like a puppet to my commands.

Our days are numbered, together we stand.

I’ll use you up, and spit you out.

I’ll end your life without a doubt.

They’ll be many to choose from, when you are gone,

Just one little pill and I move on.

I’m in your homes, and your schools. I’m on the streets.

I’m all dressed up and I look so sweet.

One in seven is infected by me.

But I want you all and soon it may be.

Come here little boy. Have a toke.

You’ll find euphoria, in my smoke.
