they, being the pro-fess-shin-nals,
nothing wrong with you
you need to give up smoking,
you need to drink more water,
you need to get more sleep,
a bit more exercise.
That was the 80s.
roll on the 90s…
you need counselling
you need to talk more
be more open and shit
not so untrusting.
But also do what we told you in the 80s,
cos that’s still sound advice.
2000’s roll on …
we have a new pill
actually a few of them.
You need to try these.
“but i thought you said there was nothing wrong”
Oh, sorry, we forgot to say
(but not admitting such, in any technical kind of way,
so you could sue the shit out of us, in a technical kind of way):
your depressed, and then after that
you got yourself a little borderline personality disorder thingy
but that’s normal for someone who has your history
when they hit their 20s and 30s…
a couple of stomach ulcers
some kind of immune disorder thingy that we’re not to sure about
oh and then just yah run of the mill
eczema, asthma bullshit.
but now you’re in your 40s its
and an all round break with reality,
yeah well, that sets in, did we say
in your 40s?.
Here we have more pills for that,
take two, then three, then four,
next week 6, then 8, then we’ll
the dose the week after
and then add a few
because you all
and if you don’t take these,
we will make a note with
you are not cooperating.
ME in response to all you
no ears motherfuckers
who took my money no sweat,
who signed the slip so i could have more
but won’t HELP:
Go fuck yourselves!
