My Tribute to.....Mylanta


My innards growl all night and day,
Intestines...bowel in disarray.
Belching acid on the hour,
...regretting what I did devour.
Indigestion! Oh so dire!
My Oesophagus! It burns like fire!
MYLANTA! ....mystic tummy fixer,
Chalky white, supreme elixir.
How I crave your offensive taste,
Spoonfuls gulped with messy haste.
You alleviate the torment well,
And rescue me from heartburn hell.
My trusty friend.... all bottled blue,
Sweet reflux slayer...I heart you.

Apparently, mylanta can also be used on zits. You are supposed to dab it on and leave it over night.

Mony Mony! Do you want a job? You are a fantastic writer. The rhythm and rhyming in your poem is 10/10. I love it!!

Brought back memories actually ... I would call it "the Vienetta" - aka layer upon layer. One layer of food, one layer of Mylanta, etc.
