Tied up and twisted
shaking on the floor.
Big men in white coats
coming through my door.

Reserpine with orphenadrine,
my psychopathic shot.
Stick me with a needle
boy, that really hits the spot.

Numbing and dumbing,
my mind completely froze.
I can't feel my fingers,
I can't feel my toes.

Plug me in with wires,
poke holes in my head,
Electroshock therapy
and tie me to the bed

Beat me, whip me, kick me,
tie me to the wall.
Feed me lots of drugs
so I have no mind at all.

Tied up and twisted
shaking on the floor.
Big men in white coats
coming through my door.

Joseph Wraith

Such a vivid look inside those walls. I never did find out what was in my cocktail.

Masterful writing on this sensitive topic! You gave us a look at the real thing!

Reviewed by Jane Rodway 5/12/2006
Excellent, realistic, too. My brother is mentally ill and it always bothers me how people look at it like a shameful thing, and you showed the side of that person on the inside.

So much for having a Lobotomy? Makes me think of the 70's Oscar film "Five Easy Pieces." Regard, Gloria
