It has to be asked

 
 
Does it do what it says on the label?
and if it does do you think you’ll be able?
 
because we all want to be what we want you to see
but sometimes we need some assistance.
 
And do we dollop it on?
that wouldn’t make it last long
or
do we swallow the pills to get
those little thrills?
 
I’m in two minds,
his and mine,
taking the time to weigh up
to see if it’s worth my time
to stay up or even the time
to man-up,
 
does it do what it says on the label?
