A drug that’s dear to our hearts
I had thought that simvastatin
Was a rude word in Latin
Like that pill that refreshes your parts
But in fact, all it does
Is to clear out the fudge
And de-sludge the inside of your heart.
Helps with the fat in
Butter and scratchings of pork
But after years of inaction
And the odd adverse reaction
You no longer run - you just walk...
That valiant drug’s done its best - but the fug
In your blood, that’s turbid with lipids,
Caused mainly by pasties - and ‘oop North’ by pork pies,
(Which is why you’ve exceeded your optimum size)
Can only be cleared
If you lay off the beer.
Become vegan and go to a gym
Try religion - keep pigeons!
Join the club, miss the pub,
And stay in
And with your prayers every night
T’would be wise to pop in
A nice little pink pill
