Mental Health (Haiku)

Then all locked away
Folk institutionalized
Lost forever more

Now the bars are gone
Yet still lives are held hostage
By social stigma

We call that progress!
Yet what is the difference?
Time for real change now!

Ego’s Achilles Heel

Seeing faces in the clouds
Feeling chills down back and spine
Thinking voices are discussing you
Reading in between each line

Convinced just so subjectively
In egotistic way
That this and that and that and this
Is about you per se

Believing life revolves around you
The axle in a wheel
Yet sadly such ideas are just
Your limp Achilles heel

If I Was An Alien

If I was an alien looking from space
I’d look at the Earth and think what a disgrace
For the blue isn’t clear and the green is all gone
The people are fighting; there’s so much so wrong
I’d think to myself are these people for real?
They’ve brains in their heads and are able to feel
They say they are civilized but is that a joke?
For this planet they’re killing and trying to choke
The breath from its lungs and its heart they don’t see
They don’t stop or listen less let alone be
At peace or contented; at one with them self
And with fags, booze and burgers they’re screwing their health
They rush here and there in a blizzard of faff
They’re peculiar beings and to be honest quite naff
And they don’t speak anymore; they don’t nod, say hello
But sit on the internet; surfing to and fro
And with all that potential I do wonder why
They don’t care for each other leaving some just to die
Or blow others up with big guns and with words
What an odd little planet, how very absurd!
But the thing that I’d wonder; that perplexes me most
Is their obsessions with aliens; pillar for post
For in the state that they’re in, do they really conceive
That I’d venture to that place!  Sadly not I believe!
And for what it is worth; I would leave in a jot
If I happened to land there; found I’d taken a spot
Up on the Earth that’s blessed above all
For these humans appear hell bent on their fall.
If I was an alien looking from space
I’d look at the Earth tears falling down from my face

Puppet On A String (A Haiku)

Puppet on a string
In the hands of another
Lacks autonomy

Rat In A Box

Craving for another fix
Addicted to the bait
The rat that Skinner once foretold
Comes early, never late

And presses all the buttons
For pellets one by one
No care that she’s predictable
So long she has won

Won the reward she wants to win
The feather in her hat
With belly filled to oversized
Yet branded on her back

But in actual reality
She is a rat in box
Responding just as she is bid
Until fed to the fox!

Losing Face

There’s something quite incendiary
About some folks I find
For push their button, yank their chain
And they reveal their mind

And with predictability
They bid as they are called
Reacting to the stimulus
In ways that let them fall

Fall prey to their conditioning
In ways like Pavlov’s dog
As each time they cannot resist
And end up in a bog

They always tumble in head first
With mouth a-gape; so wide
Or maybe with feet first again
To lose all face and pride

And then all full of bombast they
Exude just who they are
Least not for sure the smartest sorts
Of cookie in the jar

Rethread Our Heads

Lets rethread our heads
Unwind our minds
Through neural corridors
Potentially with active might
Synaptic strength and more
Controlling what we think and do
Project or indeed say
The way we rock to innervate
Our outcomes every day
