Quick Poem for Mental Health Day
October 10, 2015
I’m getting off, she’s obviously cracked!
You can’t know that! Give her a chance.
It’s easy to make assumptions about Mental Health.
You can’t judge, look at yourself.
You can talk, you friggin’ nutter!
I like marg, I can’t believe it’s not butter.
You only said that cos it rhymes with nutter.
p…p….people think i’m m..m..m..mad cos I’ve got a s..s.. stutter.
Psycho, bipolar,bonkers, schizophrenic!
I prefer mad, it’s more generic, and I thought bipolar was a bear that swings both ways?
Yeah you would, in your ignorant fearful haze,
If I had cancer, I’d find you all empathetic.
But it’s an ailment of the mind, so you’re all gutless, pathetic!
Mental Illness is STILL a taboo, and for a myriad of reasons – it could happen to you!
