Dr. Mom

Mom was the family doctor,
when I was just a kid.
If any of us were ailing,
This is what she did;
For those little cuts and scrapes,
she applied "monkey-blood" or iodine,
Then wrapped it with a rag;
It always healed just fine.
For those ticks and chiggers,
she daubed on bacon grease.
Since they could breathe,
they would soon release;
A concoction on a necklace,
to ward off colds and flu.
It kept them all away,
and all of our friends, too;
With Coal-oil and sugar,
she cured coughs and sour throats;
If you tried that today,
boy, "that's all she wrote."
Always, sulfur and mollasses
for a respiritory infection;
Every time I took it,
it quickly changed direction.
For our upset stomaches,
'twas Castor Oil by the spoon;
We stayed close to the outhouse,
'cus it would work real soon.
For those bad headaches,
we chewed a willow twig;
If you were seen doing it today,
they'd think you flipped your wig.
Quinine, for chills and fever;
BOY! that one was a booger.
'Cus it was so bitter,
that was followed with sugar.
All of the old remedies,
really did the trick.
We would have rather died,
than admitted that we were sick.
