My grandson and daughter had the gastrointestinal glitch that I wrote about this past week. The next day they were feeling quite a bit better, but her 3 year old son kept asking her for more of the "screw medicine".
I need a little medicine;
the stuff you said to use -
not the grape-y liquid, but
the ones that look like screws.
I'm feeling somewhat better from
my knees down to my toes;
but my hunch is that I need to take
just one or two of those.
Screw medicine is really good
for when I'm sick in bed,
It makes me feel much better
from my knees up to my head!

With that line for breaking them in half, they do look like the heads of screws! I never noticed. Leave it to a three year old.
