Why torture yourself

Why torture yourself / About who you should be / Into oblivion / Of who they all are.

Symbols to heal

That place within / The body / That is always / Trying to do something.

Clover living

So many four leaf clovers / Waiting to be found. / They hide themselves / Amongst the three leafs

I was asked if I had a ghost story

I was asked if I had a ghost story. / I delved into my memory. / I have believed many strange things…


I looked at those numbers / On an old note pad I kept / For some reason or other / And wished I’d just slept.

The need to scream

Sometimes / People need to scream / In a sound proof room. / Let the voice boom

There was a man with schizophrenia

There was a man with schizophrenia / Whose thoughts were too linear.

There was a man who was suicidal

There was a man who was suicidal / Who spent his days totally idle.

There once was a man who was insane

There once was a man who was insane / Wanted to graft part of his brain / Onto a caterpillar

There was a woman who was awry

There was a woman who was awry / She said she wanted to fall down and die. / She tried many ways / It was a passing faze / That ended when …

Out there

Must always try to be out there / Getting everything out there / Take what is inside yourself / And place it out there.


Ug. Erk . Eek. / Slug crawl sleep / Yawn scorn / Wish I’d never been born / Tear wreck forget
Medicated for writing by Initially NO

Seven of nine

Seven of nine you are so fine / With your luscious lips and pouting boobs, / Ocular implant over the eye / And suit that says: she ain’t sh…

Rainbows aren’t a crime

Charge me with an offence. / Don’t say that’s irrelevant / Because that’s not making sense.

Protection and duty of care

Not all members of the community / Are aware that they can anytime / Call psychiatric services / On a person who / Has a history of attemp…


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.

Coercive control

You must comply / Or we’ll stick our nanoprobes in you / Wonder what Startrek / Was talking about and who / When they wrote the Borg.

Psychotropic driving and the media

There are no campaigns about warning people to never operate machinery or drive while on psychiatric medication.

They tell me to be quiet

When I’d rather cause a riot / And have everyone screaming / Out their eccentric meaning. / They tell me to be quiet / But my stomach is on…

Protesting my arrest

We protested loudly / We made ourselves heard / We let ourselves be known / And together raised the tone.

Faery dust in the pockets

Faery dust in the pockets / I have faery dust in my pockets / To sprinkle on the road / And make rainbows appear

Upon awakening

I pulled myself from the wreckage / Straightened my spine / And looked down at all those things / That were attached to me

Leave us people alone!

We don’t need any medication / We don’t need any thought control / Psychos leave us people alone! / Your terms are your, not fo…
