Friends

Poem By Sherman Peebody

What color is your Prozac?
Mine is orange and gray.
A total forty milligrams,
To get me through each day.

Is Gabatril Neurontin?
Or Neurontin Gabatril?
I take both, but I suspect,
The answer is quite nil.

Clomipramine is always there,
To trump the OCD.
But never have I felt the less,
Of all I'm s'posed to be.

Alprazolam's a tranquilizer,
It removes the edge.
Especially when emotes hit,
Like a fucking sledge.

Sonata's for insomnia,
A dandy li'l hypnotic.
I wonder if it brings relief,
If one should feel psychotic?

Fabric Of Life

Heavy is this shroud of guilt...
Worn all my life.
Fringed in promise unfulfilled,
Of patchwork knit contrite...

Disappointment

Of late I have not been around,
Stopped receiving mail.
Canceled all appearances,
Planned no moving sale.

Please Don't Leave Me Here

Mom! I want to go with you!
Please! Don't leave me here!
At home alone with brothers grim,
They stab me with their jeer...

The Closing Door

Mom had dropped us in a rush,
We'd risen late from bed.
Another day in Catholic school,
That place of fear and dread.

Emotion

Emotion is a telephone,
That rings incessantly.
Emotion is a person who,
Calls to speak with me.
