35 Days: 15 May - Poem #33 Hypochondria

I used to have this roommate.
(I don't have him any more.)
He filled up all the shelf spaces
with bottles by the score.
He had pills for every ailment,
ointments, potions and
a large box of suppositories
(labeled, "Care, by hand.")
All of them were quackery -
nostrums of all kinds -
imaginary vitamins,
with effects just in his mind.
For the only thing he suffered from
in reality, I'm sure
was a chronic hypochondria
that none of them could cure.
