Ode to Ibuprofen

I hate you and I need you.

You improve my headache, but worsen my stomach pain.

You help my fever, but I stay in my bed.

I read your drug facts, searching for consolation.

Oh, how you torture me!


You cure me, but make my symptoms worse!

I am not hot, but I can only eat Saltines and toast.

This conflict torments me as I drink my 250 mL of liquids, staring at a blank ceiling. How conflicting life is!

Why did I forget to get more acetaminophen?


What can I do? I can only stay here, feeling the great suffering of existence.

How facing the flu is one of the great conflicts of life!
