    Turn it Upside Down, by Venus Connelly

    I have been wronged
    Thought I belonged
    But the end was just prolonged
    It’s the new age
    Put ‘em in a cage
    And just let them rage
    How can I start?
    When I am judged by a chart
    And not my smart
    You ask for the inconceivable
    Clarity, achievable
    It’s not even believable
    The public you deceive
    Safety they’ll receive
    If you simple give me the heave
    I am in remission
    And I have ambition
    Please just get me a physician
    So that’s your solution
    Lock me in an institution
    With no chance of retribution
    There has been a lapse
    Since the collapse
    Remove me from these straps
    I so deserve
    And persevering

    Tioga, PA
