Poetry Corner

I'm wondering what readers think of this poem. It is by Richard Brautigan and was published some forty years ago. Four short lines. Comments welcome.

The Pill vs. The Springhill Mine Disaster

When you take your pill
it's like a mine disaster.
I think of all the people
lost inside you.

Wow, that's surprising. Even 40 years ago someone saw what was coming. I bet you won't find many poets today who would say something like that!
