Talk Radio Psychotic - Poem by Harlan Lovestone

the jingoist say
I’m a radio psychotic
With dilutions I’m me
I’m a radio psychotic
Diagnosed hopeless you see
It keeps me up at night
Government fears
I try to think that I’m alright
But government fears
Lead to post traumatic tears
No use analyzing me
I'm crazy so flee
I’m a radio psychotic
Maybe the answers in a pill
I’ve taken so many narcotics
Why do I feel this ill still?
I put faith into the bloody papers
That rip me to shreds
I cried out for a fair aquittal
They shouted off with my head
I’m a radio psychotic
With dilutions I’m me
I’m a radio psychotic
Diagnosed hopeless you see
I got no use for the bloody papers
So I rip ‘em to shreds
I told ‘em I was alive and kicking
They printed I was already dead
I can’t talk to my peers
Thanks to R-F-I-D ears
And they are watching for weakness
So I pretend that I’m not here
I clothe my hide in lamb’s meekness
Avoiding government leers
That lead to post traumatic tears
Inside my head
I think I know too much
I’d speak as such
I’m too in touch
Inside my head

    It seems as though being sane in an insane world will only lead to you being labeled insane by the insane leaders who believe they are sane themselves. If that makes sense.

    I Love this and I have been a Radio Pyschotic for years....I can think of worse ways to go loco! Music is the food that drives us. Arn't we lucky to have it, the best drug ever and it's free.

    Smiling at you
