Aloe and Witch-Hazel

Like aloe and witch-hazel,
She balms the troubled soul,
Although I do suspect that is
Not typically her goal —

She’s more of a disrupter,
At odds with her own ends:
And if you dive too deep, you will
Most surely get the bends.

“Where nothing’s promised, much is given” —
(To a fevered brain)
Like aloe and witch-hazel,
You might try her

In vain
