Liver

A Poem by Sherrie Acorn

So I took the vitamin from the company that sues everyone
even though they know they are wrong–how did I not know this?–
and my liver went on a rampage. Did you know a lot of people–
too many to count–take supplements and end up in hospitals
their livers injured, some of the time past repair, but why?
Can it be they are not regulated? Can it be the halo effect?
I’ve learned my lesson–from now on I’ll do my own due diligence.
