The Drug Addict

The drug addict;
the sadistic manic;
   Popping pills,
   seeking thrills,
   for the next joint
   … he kills.

And all the while
he lies in style;
   He couldn't tell the truth,
   if his life was on the line.

For in his mind,
the dope fiend junky,
   life is designed
   for getting high;
      no one will dare
      to tell him otherwise –
      G-d knows, I tried.
