Dangerous Medicine

Dangerous Medicine Suzy Kassem Poetry

Back in the day, the physician
Cut off the foot of a patient
To prevent a fatal infection.
And today, the physician
Prevents an infection with the use of
A questionable injection.
Not a single needle works on all patients the same way,
Because many may suffer an adverse reaction.
To immunize or to vaccinate,
Both are separate actions with different intentions.
But today’s medicine is far more dangerous than ever before,
More so than when treatments were considered
Nonsensical or violent.
Because the selfish interests of
Aggressive healthcare giants,
Weigh more to the physician –
Than ethically choosing
The very best treatments
For his clients.
