Amy Palmer


Excuse me Sir, you’ve stepped in something
Ah Yes! – It was my brain.
Don’t worry Sir, it happens regularly.
I’m so numb, it has stopped causing pain.

I used my brain as a squeeze ball
For stress…
A form of cerebral masturbation.
Wernicke’s area made an awful mess
I’ve joined the institute, the Prozac Nation.

So don’t worry Sir, I’ll pill it up,
Dust it down, pop it back in.
