Drug Thugs

Riffing on comments that prescription drugs are as risky as illegal drugs sold by thugs.

By prescription or illegal,

A drug is a drug —

Behaving tricky or lethal,

A thug is a thug —

Risk factors are equal,

A drug is a drug —

Pride is the prequel,

A thug is a thug —

Some mixtures are lethal,

Know what’s in your drugs —

Some deceptions are legal,

Know who are your thugs.
