They're Plotting Against Him

They’re Plotting Against Him

By Elton Camp

Robert sees his colleagues conferring
Thus, it’s to him that they are referring

It fills him with the greatest alarm
For he’s being singled out for harm

He knows it is much more than a hunch
As he’s seen them poisoning his lunch

But it comes to him as no real surprise
He’s aware of government’s prying eyes

And the CIA has a great deal to gain
They beam messages into his brain

Voices Robert hears inside his head
Make him wish that he were dead

Of England he was supposed to be king
From this, such vile jealousy does spring

He’s convinced that these things are true
No matter what others may say or do

That he needs help, Robert doesn’t recognize
For all these matters are accurate in his eyes

Suicide may be the very best way
That’s what one voice does say

Robert’s a danger to self and others too
If you knew of it, what would you do?

If it’s no action you decide to take
It could be a life-threatening mistake
