Now’s the time
It’s time we’ve faced
That “research” known as ‘evidence based’.
Who plays? The one who pays.
Who determines wins the race…
Drugs and more drugs-a disgrace!
Does ANYTHING warrant second place?
Miles and miles of clinical trials
Not much there?
No cash to spare
What’s that? What then?
Write a grant and start again.
It takes some nerve
And common horse sense, yeah that too-
Moving mountains isn’t easy
But anyway it’s up to you…
Watch and wait
Ignore the date
(Discounting what waits on one’s plate)
Everyone with eyes to see,
Wake up; be free!
Exerting wisdom and control
Should be every person’s goal
If still you have the will to see
Evidence rests with you and me.
Not some for-profit bureaucracy.
