{npm 2019: 9}

it’s Prednisone

when the body sends snide pointers about everything you’ve missed
when your tongue can only dispense tin, or flavors you resist
when your brain’s awash in dopiness, inert, your thoughts unknown
it’s called “a cure” – it has a name; it’s Prednisone.

You know it’s bad when you’re anagramming drugs, but it made me smile, anyway.
