Him and me versus the pharmaceutical PTB

Him: pained, pitiful, confused.
PTB: aloof, arrogant, condescending.
Me: emotionally drained, struggling.
Pharmaceuticals: compliant, do as instructed.

What about compassion?
Healing through feeling?
Ownership and accountability?
Recovery as we journey to discovery?

Him: shaking, weeping, beseeching.
PTB: knowledgeable, but so far removed.
Me: frightened, teary, bone-weary.
Pharmaceuticals: not the solution, most of the problem.

How has empathy vanished?
Effort is given no credit.
Take this now, or else, is the mantra.
Medicine as threat represents terror.

Him: isolated, restrained, slurring.
PTB: lines of miscommunication are blurring.
Me: anxious, tense, opposed to pretence.
Pharmaceuticals: noxious vapours to render people dense.
