Pills and Pills

Ted’s father needed a pill to get an erection.
The erection that got Ted’s mother pregnant.
And resulted in Ted.
Doctors prescribed pills for Ted’s attention deficit disorder.
And more pills for the resulting stomachaches.
He needed pills for allergies.
And more pills for the side-effects from those pills.
When he broke out with acne, there was a cream for that.
But it was greasy, so he took even more pills.
He needed pills for anxiety.
And pills for a football injury.
Ted had nightmares, and committed suicide.
His body was cremated, put into pills, and given to his friends.
