Be sure both hands are working great
When opening your weekly methotrexate
If those pills should happen to spill –
Traveling thru the air of their own free will…

Yes it happened in just that way –
on my nasty rat poison pill day,
I lost three under the dresser,
Two under the bed…
Six mixed in shag carpet
With the same color thread.

I don’t have a dog, a cat, or a mouse,
but if one pill got in the wrong little mouth….
It’s the ‘where’s waldo?’ panic I’m talking about.
Each pill must be found without a doubt.

So I searched and counted
to make sure they’re all here,
Now I’m worn to a frazzle…
With nothing to fear.
