I have two names, David and Tich.
I am not rich.
I am diagnosed schizophrenic, so what?
Thanks a lot.
I dislike labels.
I like chairs and tables.
In their proper places, I don’t like airs and graces.
Under the name of David I drink and as Tich I sit and think.
And sometimes write.
I hope not shite.
I was born in Ireland to be geographic.
Should I go pornographic?
I might be a bigger seller.
Like Joseph Heller.
My brother says Joseph Heller was not pornographic, must I point that out?
He wrote Catch 22, a great book, no doubt.
Very funny too.
My best to you.
This poem is semi-demi autobiographical, often the best type.
Like David Copperfield and other tripe.
Allow the madman speak.
The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.
What would you say if you spoke someone said to me.
Well, nothing much, do you agree?
At least I’m me.
