Eats (Vorticum Septum Vulgaris)

Oh! Ye of strong menthol!
Come hither, Vicks snakery!
How you climb through obvious vaporial drafts
Only to cause tingling warmness!
You are strong and mineral-based
Like the dark liquid we have fought wars over
And once the wars are over
You will be there to soothe our strained alveoli
You will comfort the limbless soldiers
Who bonded with one another amidst sandstorms and prostitutes
With a frightening explosion now and then
It's hard to pry these men apart
From the morbid gravity of memories
And the understanding of honor
That can never be duplicated among civilians

Lock and load! Try some zinc lozenges along with your Vicks!
