Addictive Emotional Crap: A Satirical Poem

Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.


People get addicted to their emotional crap

after negative responses are much repeated

and that's probably most popular human trap

for all those who keep their brains overheated.

That escalates into something downright crazy

as we don't notice how pissed-off feels good

but our consciousness, as if asleep or lazy

won't kick us out of the destructive mood.

Next, our body is storing that rosy disposition

now feeding us beck demands for some more

like, liver is the site of anger upon its repetition

and our lungs are keeping all our sadness score.

Victimhood we store in our lower back

our stomach is so oftentimes our fear site

that held back bitterness we keep in our neck

and heart keeps all records of love not going right.

Well, we won't put in our mouth any known toxic stuff

but when it's our brain, we happily feed it some junk

then we compensate all that crap by acting tough

not convincing more than overconfident drunk.

Just like it's often hard to quit a drug

so we can't give up those bad emotions

as if we were infected by some stupidity bug

we just keep generating those annoying notions.

Then we see a doctor, or we see a shrink

or resort to increase of our happy weed use

all in vain, because it's merely the way we think

and in that war, addiction is bound to make us lose.
