Insides out (ingesting)
in most foods that we masticate.
Our drinks the makers caffeinate:
we think this will rejuvenate.
It doesn’t take a diplomate
to know we shouldn’t drink phosphate.
Don’t smoke, detox, decaffeinate;
use diets that desalinate.
With good food we capacitate.
Eat badly, we dilapidate.
Food oils we hydrogenate.
Kill fungi with Merthiolate.
When wanting to exhilarate
it’s common to intoxicate
with alcohols that lubricate:
fermented from the vines baccate.
But after all we drank and ate
we ingest much bicarbonate.
As stomach ulcers aggravate
our mouth glands start to salivate.
We loudly belch and flatulate.
Cascades we then regurgitate.
Leave puddles where we urinate
then wait in queues to defecate.
In slurred speech we alliterate.
Our throbbing dull heads acerbate.
For fast relief we aspirate
a few breaths of amyl nitrate.
We pop some pills to stimulate
nerve systems to accelerate.
We like to soar and elevate
to worlds beyond those of our fate.
Or search for something to sedate
and help us to eradicate
the demons we hallucinate
in darkened realms within our pate.
