Again

Again.

When life hurts the local shop has 

special offers on display;

some things to take away the pain,

and cures for the following day.

Mysteries, news, and telly’s dramas

dispense a range of remedies for

tense and carefully staged distress,

to the afflicted of their texts;

Self-prescribing-advertising,

double-doses the elixirs

running through its veins,

consummating pain and fear.

When life hurts communities air

care for those who’ve double dosed

on things to take away the pain,

as an ambulance transports hope,

Again.
