Iboprofen

Your average Paracetamol convinces you you’re not hurt

Tells your brain there is nothing to shiver about

But then there’s Iboprofen

She works on the swelling, she massages the pain, she works on site

She says it’s okay to be hurt, and helps the hurt to pass

But your friend Paracetamol just tells you to ignore it

Tells your brain to pretend the pain isn’t there

Convincing you your pain is wrong

Hoping it will pass
