A Poem about Optus


My Phone

I bought a phone the other day,
at little cost, I would say,
it's locked to Optus, my little joke,
they have my account and cause no yoke.

Gave me fetch T.V. for free,
now I'm recording off my T.V.,
rent a movie at a small price,
buy all the ones that I like.

They gave me an internet package,
at a cost, I can easily manage,
their service shows much merit,
when I'm sad they cheer me with a credit.


About the Author

I was born in Melbourne Australia on March 4th, 1957. My mother worked in a pie van at Victoria market. My father drank. My brother, sister and I used to take time off school, go to the museum, botanical gardens or sneak into the zoo. When I was 9 we moved to a country town not far from the city. I enjoyed roaming around the paddocks. I didn't do well at school, my lack of concentration made studying difficult, I dropped out to pursue a career in retail. I managed an aquarium successfully. In 1985 I was diagnosed with schizophrenia, later with paranoid schizophrenia, with this came heavy cannabis use. I was in and out of hospitals for a long time. New medications have made me stable, I haven't been hospitalized since 2000. Psychosis radicalized my thinking, I realized I could make something out of the darkness. That was the beginning of my paranormal journey.
