On downturned road I stop to see
The brownstone apothecary
Bring your bowl and pestle near
Crush the pills that quell a tear
Perhaps a tight pain tourniquet
Or balm that helps the heart forget
Mix the the serum one could use
For shaking off their Winter Blues
Add in a swirly lollipop
For soon these dreary days must stop
