NaPoWriMo 2014 - Day 23


RELIEF


If you’re aged ten years or less
And your sheets are soaking wet
You must report it at once
To your Bedpan Monitor
Who will in turn refer you
To an uneducated
Unqualified Mind Reader
…Who will fully understand

In emergency cases
The level of chemicals
Entering into your brain
Will be altered by doctors
Who will cheerfully prescribe
A strong dose of Tricyclic
Antidepressants for you

Any thoughts of suicide
Will be dealt with severely:
You will lose your right to drive:
Operate machinery:
And drinking of hard liquor
Will be rationed or denied
