mental

 

I’ve been told that I am crazy,

that I’m mentally insane.

 

daddy hEld mE dowN

hE smElt stroNgly of boozE

 

 I’ve been told that I’m a danger

to all those I hate and love.

 

hElp mE mommy!!!

siNg mE my favoritE song

 

 I’ve been told that I am safer

if I’m locked up tough and tight.

 

hE killEd hEr in froNt of mE

i killEd him thE samE way

 

I’ve been told that I am crazy

that I’m mentally insane.

 

policEmEN sirENs Numb my Ears

rEd blood tastEs fuNNy

 

 I’ve been told that I’m a danger

to all those I hate and love.

 

small off-whitE vEst

thEy lockEd mE iN

 

  I’ve been told that I am safer

if I’m locked up tough and tight.

 

whitE foamEd walls

cold mEals, spoilEd milk chuNks

 

I’ve been told that I am crazy,

that I’m mentally insane.

 

daddy hEld mE dowN

hE smElt stroNgly of boozE

 

But they don’t know the real story-

behind the crazy that’s me.
