Hyperbole Mental

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.

A Maze In My Mind

A Maze In My Mind

I am so hungry I could eat an elephant

Yet I have gained so much weight I could fit in a Giants Pants

I don’t know what is wrong with me, a million doctors couldn’t set me straight

My brain is wobbling like a jello, squished and squashed on a plate

Maybe I should just jump this one thousand feet fence and run three hundred miles home

And stop on the way and get an ice-cream on a cone.

I was running for a millennium, then a car flashed pass faster than light

I stopped, putted up my hands because I thought I was in a fight

The temperature was higher than the sky

I was burning like a turkey on thanks giving, I wanted to die

The cracks on my lips were broader than the Grand Canyon

Who will save me from this mental desert, is there anyone?

I saw a shade created by a two feet cactus and seeked refuge

This was an opportunity for life and I could not refuse

I hurried to the plant and made a nose dive for the shade

Then suddenly the sun shifted position spitefully and in the blink of an eye, the shade had fade.

I screamed at the top of my voice which could be heard from any place that was holy

And thumped the ground, breaking every bone in my body.

Then suddenly I saw the President appeared

But this time he was wearing a beard

I tried to stand, I slid, tried standing again and I slid

And as I gained balanced I stepped into a huge dark hole that was planet sized big

Floating and Floating, almost like laying in air forever

Then I felt a sting in my arm, it was the medicine administrator

He was giving me my usual dose of risperidone

Which took me out from that desert and back in my mental home.
