946 For My Health! 12-09-2020

In a plastic, weekly, pill holder,

(compartments labeled M…T…W… and so forth),

are all the vitamins, minerals and dietary supplements

I take from day to day.

For convenience sake,

I swallow Fish-Oil, Saw Palmetto, and Vitamin E

in gel form

on Day-one

and C, Super-B-Complex, D3,

Glucosamine-MSM-Calcium, (all in one pill!)

and a Multi,

in tablet form,


Shrewdly, I save time and space

by doling them out,

two days worth in one section,

so my 7-Day pill holder lasts two full weeks

while my whole bottled stash,

alphabetically stamped and stored,

sits patiently in my pantry,

waiting for its bi-monthly appearance.

I am fastidious,

nearly compulsive,

I confess,

in my regimen.

Each daily dose pilled out during breakfast

on the 15th morning after the 14th mornings dose.

All of the above is dedicated

to the making of a long and healthy life,

as, each day,

I draw closer to

it not making

any damn difference

at all.
