What are your assumptions?
Oh God of Rationale,
Are you even aware of them?
God of “in the real world”
Where is this real world?
How do you know you’re in it
And I’m not?
God of “it could be worse”
Why should I feel better
That someone else
Has it worse?
God of Judgement
If all puffs are fluffs
And some fluffs are muffs
And all fluffs are tuffs
Can they all be fools?
(As an aside to the God of IQ
Does an education in Venn Diagrams
Give a distinct advantage?)
God of Psychological Disorders
How does packaging me
Into a neat labelled box
With my difficulties and suffering
Help me in any way?
Or does it just help you?
Does it ease the discomfort I illicit in you?
Is this a coping mechanism for you?
Could you possibly have Obsessive Compulsive
Without this coping mechanism would you find it
Difficult to “emotionally regulate”?
Would you have to step down off that pedestal
You’ve put yourself on?
Admit your self-defeating behavior?
Would you have to lose that patronising tone?
Would you feel the need to downgrade my Risk Assessment
So I could buy an Oreo Ice-cream Sandwich
In the hospital shop and eat it in the garden
With my fellow disordered personalities?
Or should I wrap this packaging so tightly
Around my neck that you and some other “objective” gods
Lock me in Critical Care without my consent?
