Magpie Tales #222 Dead End

 Image provided by Tess Kincaid of Magpie Tales

Take this for what ails ya
It ain't aganst the law
It'll make ya feel much bettah 
As you ingest for happiness
Erase sadness as you swallow
Tired of all your soggy sorrow
With one gulp and a deep breath
You've managed to hook up with Dr. Death

Appropriately unnerving words to go along with this picture.

Good stuff, and the reversed image caps it.

Love the dragon on the side bar!

So many "want a pill for that," and by "that," they mean everything. Sad.
