The Hump - Poem by Lynne RBC

I am not on a diet,
and you don't need to offer,
Go ahead-
Double dose that tranquilizer.
Brush my hair
keep my straitjacket slick
His gaze is sunshine
gotta' look irresistibly chic.
Paint this asylum
purple and yellow
I'm expecting visitors
at home tomorrow.
Add some music
make my roommates dance
I can only be human
with sheer exuberance.

Start the tantrums,
steal moments forbidden,
rip a page,
break the rules,
relive a bad memory;
If it's what it takes to be happy
by all means, crush out - SANITY!
