Declaration 8 – An Effective Remedy

The aspirin is an effective remedy
For headaches. And is said to be
Helpful to the heart.

The aspirin is effectively available
In chemists. And can be got from
A high street near you.

The aspirin is actually and easily
Digestible. And, last time I looked
Very cheap to buy.

Aspirins remain an effective remedy
Unlike judges. And councillors
Crooked from the start.

Aspirins remain an effective remedy
For the body. Not for developers
Driving their fast cars.

The aspirin is an effective remedy
except for the law. You need a lot more
than aspirins for that particular headache
