“RE: THE FEAR OF BEING INSANE OR SEDUCED BADLY!!” a poem Thursday: September 6, 2018

(S)He said: “I’m AFRAID we’re-all 2-steps-

From-The-(Loony)-Bin!”

“Well, Yea!” I said; “but, please-allow-me (pause) to – let you right in,

ON A SECRET! The secret is: WE’RE ALREADY THERE!

This is – a fancy psyche ward – and we haven’t (got) a prayer,

Of ever getting out – so, what’cha suppose we should do?”

She looked at me, bewildered and beautiful; (pause)

Then said, with a little coo:

“But it does not look – like no funny farm;

It has some ‘perks’ – and quite a lot of charm.

I don’t see BARS or jailers, as such; it has many wonderful things – like food (pause) and like touch!”

“Yes,” I agreed; “there are sensual delights,

Which we’re warned to avoid-for -there are ‘wrongs’ and ‘rights,’

By PEOPLE IN CHARGE! Those folks are our guards,

And your body has walls – SOLID BARS! for (us) retards,

And WE’RE BORN HERE IN JAIL, AND WE KNOW NOTHING ELsssSE,

AND WE’RE MOSTLY LIKE BABIES, AND OUR CONSCIENCE will tell-usss,

HOW FAR WE CAN GO, WITH WORDS & WITH ACTIONS,

AND, IF-THE-CONSCIENCE WON’T ‘WORK,’

THERE ARE LAWS, GUNS & FACTIONS,

AND THOSE-WILL-KEEP-US-’IN LINE,’ YOU CAN’T STRAY VERY FAR,

AND YOU’RE LIABLE TO DIE, BADLY, IN A PLANE, BED or CAR!

We are set-up – and strung-out – and-manipulated just so,

To “BE HAPPY IN OUR WORK,”* and to work ‘til we go,

To a much BETTER place, over-The-Rainbow-it’s-SO-nice,

BUT (I THINK) THE BEST YOU CAN HOPE FOR – is to grab you some “spice,”

And, maybe-to-luck-out (?) and find (pause) a REAL GOOD LOVER,

And live HAPPILY-EVER-AFTER, hope-she won’t (?) blow ‘YOUR COVER(?)’”

“YES! (pause) It’s all just insane!” SHE said, with a smile,

As she-undid her blouse – for to show my HER STYLE!
