Unstable - Poem by Phil Soar

When I was five she took me by the hand
And said that I was mental and unstable
She said she’d hit me until I could not stand
And banged my head upon the kitchen table
She said that Hatton was the place for me
Now I am mad and nearly sixty-three
Hatton was an asylum full of twits
Her bad remarks had left my soul in bits
