via Daily Prompt: Bitter

40624-onthewestsidearound70thstreetThe taste of bitter is brittle and metallic in the mouth. We all know that it is easier to swallow a pill if it is sugar-coated or as Mary Poppins tells us “a little bit of sugar helps the medicine go down.”

Bitterness is not just a flavor, however. It can also be a state of mind. Is there a pill for that?
