Loop-hole

I’m trying to find a loop-hole
In these loopy laws
That say that that torture
Can be used
On people who do not abuse.
I’m trying to find a way
That will say that’s not okay.
I’m trying to say what’s sick
Are the people who treat
With an order by our law
That puts the community
As the authority
When the general public
Doesn’t know
About what happens
Behind those white-coated doors,
Where chemicals are injected
And people are not listened to
Rather told that they must agree
That they must comply
And if they don’t
They’ll be dosed up
Even higher than before
Perhaps then some ECT
Or if it comes to it, psychosurgery.
Just forget about what they’ve done
Don’t even bother to sue
You won’t win
They’ll get the best
Criminal lawyer in
Who will lay down their law:
We’ll shoot you if you say anything
You stupid dumb whore.
