  • Sometimes, a doctor's prescription doesn't always work.
    All the blame, all the responsibilities have we managed to shirk.

    But what has come from all this:
    the stress monster hooked onto your coat tails,
    the web of depression which sneaks in with your mail.

    And there, as you sit and wonder
    with how you managed to score such a blunder,
    Allow me to clear that fog of confusion.

    What happened to those peaceful Sundays
    when you'd give all those artworks your appraise?
    What became of all those holiday plans,
    to America, to Korea, to France?

    Where did those fleeting memories go?
    Those childlike games we used to play
    all of them, eventually we'd outgrow.

    So here, I shall give you one.
    Just one, to give you a start.
    The wrapping's not professional
    The cost, not hair-raising
    But the value's worth more than a million gold bars
    The Energy, more than a million neutron stars.

    Here, have a laugh. Have a laugh,
    and we shall share it together.
    Brush away all those heavy deadlines
    and sit under the sunshine.
    Let it escape your lips, don't hold it back
    It'll start as a giggle; you might even crack.

    But I can assure you this:
    it's the best prescription you'll ever receive.
