Pill Brigade

image of pills  - various pills isolated on white - JPG

Pill bottles align my dresser
Ready to do battle
With what ails me

The doctor says
It must be so
Or my ails will win

But he doesn’t tell me how
To squeeze
All these little chronic soldiers
Into my routine

So I sometimes wonder
Which is worse
The soldiers or the struggle?
