Alcohol and Paracetamol

Throat infection:
Great temptation
To use
Alcohol and paracetamol,
Go-to drugs in time of need,
Go-to drugs to feed
The temperature,
The aching limbs,
Throat full of broken glass –
A real bad ass.
Alcohol and paracetamol
May appall
The health and safety brigade
But it’s better than
Diuretic antibiotic,
Days of pain
With little gain,
So alcohol and paracetamol’s
The best for me
To recover, gradually.
