the asylum of asking questions

thro gritted teeth in total disbelief
a range of answers held captive
out of reach but audibly recognizable

the pyschiatirist`s hat fell to the floor
revealing riddles born out of shame
electronically tagged questions
it will never be the same
force fed information

a lion tamer reliving his past
no lions no chair no past
just a circus of outragous delusions
formed in a catastrophic echo

blind faith parading as knowledge
church and mosque demolishing freedom
the hand of charity gave up hope
faith healers reborn as celebrities
no more faith no more healing

depraved denounced and undecided
all stones were left unturned
prozac,lithium and cognative therapy
because of a poor education
no metaphorical key was left under the table

now within these ayslum walls its utter disbelief
no kind hearts………. no saving graces
being introduced to all the non smiling faces
fallen out with reality
no one speaks but the screams are heard inside

escaping from the harsh realities outside
the emptyness in a prison of shadows
the monotonoy was suffocating
without dreams scars never heal

the inward spiral or the outward spiral
what is permitted and what is forbide
an intensely obeyed protocol of rules
a system of deperate measures

in this world of mood stabiliser`s
all the nerotransmitters stop transmitting
as the questions slowly move away
the lights stop burning as questions stop turning

horrified by your horroscope
as the last rain cheque fell
god and the pyschiatrist shook hands
and opened their doors to hell

the asylum of asking questions
