Raped of all freedoms, basic democratic rights Restraints ever tighten casting underdog to fight Sharp scratch of needle pierces State sectioned vein I submerge to a world of the psychiatrists drain Adult my dummy preventing tongues loss to bite Held within induced seizures epileptic in might I welcome the darkness, one silent scream Memory the victim midst non-consenting scene Consciousness awakens clouded mind to dull mist Punch drunk I sit to chemical onslaughts new fist Medicated features exaggerates hollowing face Expressionless my return, a salivating disgrace Emptied companions stare at floors, piped TV We sit, we quietly stare at the nothing now to see Surrendered manic thoughts, depression held at bay Psychiatry cures tomorrow by destroying my today This legalised torture, "Electro Convulsive Therapy" A disproved mental abattoir of Victorian barbarity Why erase future names from the timeline of mankind Whilst celebrating all achieved by past great bipolar minds
