Limbic Limbo! By C A Middleton © 2018
Ah, the bitter taste of imaginary defeats
The limbic system
Like a DVD.
Who is the presser of Play?
I wait until my eyes are flicking
Left and right;
Flicks up a thumb,
Out comes my
Lonnnnnnnng index finger and
WHACK goes the Play button.
”the movie this evening
Is not new,
You’ve lived this embarrassment
One time or two.
You’ve lived the pain, the drain
The insecurities again and again.
Did you have a good cringe
The last time you watched?
If not, you will when you wake!”
