Feelings: Conspiracy-Fearing Moron - Persecution Mania - Poem by Margaret Alice

Sitting in my office, eyes swollen, looking
as if I had been in a bar fight last night

June is going to kill me, she needs production
numbers which I can’t supply due to mental

malfunction, the committee will hang me; they
blithely want to forge ahead with a new date

without consulting the venue repeating the
same debacle - I’m not willing to go along

the Nile-Crocodile has been reduced to a teeth-
gnashing reptile by last night’s eating wrong meat

marinated in their own basting; iron bar pressures
mounting in the head, without psychological fears

I would have stayed in bed; but I always keep going –
food intolerance is a life-long companion

although it changes me into a Conspiracy-Fearing
Moron with Persecution Mania – at least

knowing the causes helps me to laugh at all my
anxieties and fears – afterwards

right now sitting in crocodilian silence hating
the world - while plotting to hang myself…
