"The daytime, non-drowsy, congested stuffy head, sore throat, coughing, aching, fever so you can get through the day medicine."

That's what Vicks, the maker of DayQuil, says.

I say:

Orangy colored liquid joy!
You stop the hacking!
Painful wracking
Of the lungs!
I do not get sleepy!
So the children on me do not chew!
New Larger Size!
So I'm not bereft
Of the liquid that sustains!
I pour this libation
Nectar of the gods
Foodstuff of greatness
Oh lighter sister of NyQuil
Lacking the sinister green glow
Thank you!
