The Lyrics

After a "childfree" forum posted a link to the news story below, I felt inspired to write some protest lyrics.
I've been refused drugs--
Pharmacist sounded sick.
I don't care how devout you are;
I need these pills, and quick!

I've been refused drugs--
Man at the counter said,
"Don't want a kid? Avoid the guys--
Can't give you pills instead!"

I had a right to service;
he had a job to do.
All this makes me feel like I should try to sue,
take him to court and sue.

I've been refused drugs--
had to refill.
Don't think I asked too much,
just more of the Pill!

I had a right to service;
he had a job to do.
All this makes me feel like I should try to sue,
take him to court and sue.

I've been refused drugs--
now I'll do what I should.
Pharmacist said: "My soul feels bad--
even a transfer, that's no good!"

I've been refused drugs--
can't do without.
Pharmacist's faith was just too much,
my "scrip" made him freak out.

I had a right to service;
he had a job to do.
All this makes me feel like I should try to sue,
take him to court and sue.

Maybe that pharmacist should consider a different career, eh?

You missed a stanza in the second verse, but overall it was pretty good. 4-5-5.
