The Lobotomy - Poem by richard ilnicki

Behind iron bars
I'm found contemptible.
Just one ugly man among many.
They pass the trays
between the bars;
The trough is missing.
We get simple carbohydrates,
And sugar water.

Hunger makes men equal,
But some men are hungrier than others;
They eat emotions
And pick the brain cells clean.

    I like this very much. Dark, cynical, heart wrenching. Excellent. Thank you, Gypsy. (Report) Reply

    Self-induced lobotomy......a unique way to detach oneself from an incomprehensible existence. An interesting piece of writing.
