I WANT A NEW DRUG

BY BRONSE BAKER

I want a new drug

You heard it before

I don’t want more drugs those drugs or better

I want a new drug

One that works like a stream

One that you pay for once not twice not 5 times

Withdrawal’s more expensive than money

Addiction stronger than all time served

I want a new drug

Make me feel good

I want a new drug

Reality will fall back winded, I’m ahead

Just 65 years to meander and listen

Death crawls like a stain on your shirt

Prescription drugs for lies doctors made of lies, lies in your head and lies in your bed of stale dreams

Wait, wait, wait for the stain. I see it now in the dark.

Please I want a new drug

Pure and powerful as mothers love

Don’t step on it, answer the phone

Mothers love glowing alone that cuts through heart ache

Mothers love that cuts through time and mind

Mother love that beats a Royal flush and an old rug

Her peanut butter cookies and my bloody toes

But for the love of atoms and tomatoes all our time comes

And my time Mother Drug is it my time.

Then when

Love and love refurbish my soul

But that stain won’t come out and I always new it

I want a new drug.

I want to be four and start over.

I want to say I’m sorry

So sorry for me for it and for you

Sorry in the cistern in a deep well, under a big mountain in a small green book, sorry!

I want it to last one day forever pumping water, strawberry’s smiling in a bowl

But it just can’t and I always new that

But the wanting and the sorry

I want and I want but it’s all gone now

Just a picture in my mind

So good shepherd call my name.

Call loud and ring the bell

I can smell the timothy hay just cut in your fields
