The Lyrics

[Attention to the risks of nonmedical use of propofol increased in August 2009 due to the Los Angeles County coroner's conclusion that Michael Jackson died from a mixture of propofol and the benzodiazepine drug lorazepam. According to a July 22, 2009, search warrant affidavit unsealed by the district court of Harris County, Texas, Jackson's personal physician, Conrad Murray, administered 25 milligrams of propofol diluted with lidocaine shortly before Jackson's death.]
Gone, the King; his life abruptly shuttered—
A careless L.A. “doctor” caused his fall.
Doc knew on which side his bread was buttered
As he “cured” insomnia with Propofol.

Many quacks cater to celebrities
Whose bad behavior frequently does gall. . .
Give ’em what they “need,” do it with celerity—
Whether that need is speed or woke-not pall.

[injection interlude]

So Judy Garland, e.g., got her measure
From studio quacks always there, on call.
King, the singer, will no more give us pop pleasure,
His syringer proffered too much Propofol.

Very thoughtful piece. Too bad the docs weren't so thoughtful.
