Residual

See this pill?
Just look, little girl.
Do not crush or chew.
Simply swallow
and peace comes to you.

It will let you sleep.
It will let you dream.
It will dry away your tears.
It will answer all your prayers.

Eyes close down.
Brain remains in gear.
Can't find the stairs,
but gotta get over there.
What always remains
is fear.
