See Me? - Poem by enrica kita mcintosh

This is about a girl who is still suffering from great trauma
She was forced to eat as a chilld
It is meant to sound like from the lips of someone extremely disturbed
See me?
See me?
Do you see this fork?

No mama
Don't make me eat
Don't make me eat
What's the time? Where's your watch?
What's the time?

See me?
See this fork?
You want me to stick it
In a lump of pork?
No mama
Don't make me eat
Don't make me eat

Remember the time
When I was a wee bairn
We kept going up
Till we reached that red cairn?
I did not want to go
No I didn't, I did not
So Jimmy kicked me all the way up
Jimmy kicked me all the way up
So he did

What's the time now?
It is not time to eat
It is never time to eat!
Remember the time
When I was a wee child
We kept going up
And the day was so mild

Where's the clock?
It was up there
Where's the clock?
Mama it's not fair
We got to the cairn
Red stones
White lines
Like butcher steaks
It gave me the shakes

But it was cheap paste you put in the rolls
The kind I hated
And you made me eat it
And stale bread
It went down like led
And you made me eat it

Mama you made me eat the stuff
And when I said no
You handled me very rough
You croaked like a crow
It was twelve o'clock
And Jimmy would laugh and mock
And when you rammed the pink paste down my throat
He would stand there and gloat

It is not twelve o' clock now mama is it?
Because if it is
See me?
See this fork
I will stick it in my body
Like in a lump of pork
