Paul Stevens: Homeopathic Cure



They say that like cures like. If this be true,
Come here, sweet girl: I'm sick with love for you.
Since you have laid me low with this disease
Then application of you heals. But please,

So raging is the fevered malady,
On no account dilute the remedy −
Apply it at full strength, and topically:
One high, sweet dose of you will physic me.
