Sugar and spice and everything weird
a tug on Jupiter's beard
equal parts bay, henbane and kelp
a tooth from a spotted wolf's whelp
garlic, cayenne, turmeric and lime
a wood spoon to stir into slime
who's laugh?

Medicine, funky medicine
nasty medicine
medicine, kinky medicine
a taste of your own medicine
Sister Moon whisper the words over the fire
homegrown medicine

Sensual purple of a deeper shade
visions flash on a new blade
Montezuma's flesh; licorice tomb
the smile of a young girl in bloom
add whatever you want for taste
and share! Don't let it go to waste!
who's laugh?

Medicine, voodoo medicine
Chinese medicine
medicine, tantric medicine
a taste of your own medicine
honey, a little too much, exactly right
who's laugh?

Medicine, goofy medicine
country medicine
medicine, freaky medicine
a taste of your own medicine

Medicine, cellular medicine
planetary medicine
medicine, outlaw medicine
laughter is the best medicine
