I Need Antibiotics

from Wake by Atom Orr



You are here. Hang up and try again.
Walk don't run, push don't pull. They
say cancer cures smoking, cancer cures smoking.
I write this song to take out the trash,
detectors and disinfectant. The number
you have dialed has been disconnected,
I'm O.K. if you're O.K.
I need antibiotics.
Marleen and Joe forevah. Hang up
and try again. Make sure to
cross the “I’s” and damn the “me's”
and wave to the camera, wave to the camera.
I'm feeling a little bit dirty, "quite contraire”, they say
in small circles. I'm feeling a little bit
feverish, like a raging car fire that
everyone stops and stares,
and this cough won’t go away.
I'm O.K. if you're O.K.
I need antibiotics.
