The Concoction

by the13thpoet

I took a sip of this weird concoction
It left my head spinning and rocking
I felt like I would hurl and spew
I stepped outside, I didn't know what to do

I looked up at a weird purple sky
And saw lions and tigers and bears, oh my!
I found it strange and rather odd
Was I now in the land of Oz?

What was in that drink? I wasn't told
But I swear I was on a yellow brick road
I clicked my heals three times to go home
Instead I woke up on a pee stained floor

Gross! I won't drink anymore, today.
