Russian Aspirin

I still have Russian asp’rin in my kit
Although my Russian headache has been cured
Cyrillic letters were the cause of it
I never knew аспирин was a word!
I see the Neva, flowing in my mind
At times when I’m reminded of my course
Through streets and alleys where I hoped to find
Relief from my perception of pain’s source!
My pain was not from vodka, clear as rain
Although I had a Nevsky late one night
аспирин helped alleviate the pain
St. Petersburg was soothing to my plight!
I’ll keep my Russian asp’rin by my bed
In case cyrillic letters plague my head!
