The Invasion

The Invasion

While my parents were sleeping
the invasion began… first

they administered a vaccine
against innocence
and common sense. Next

I was sent to school
for readjustment. No more praying
or pledges of allegiance to God

or nation, no more
seperation
of truth from fiction. Next,

I was prescribed prescriptions
of Prozac and Ritalin
to curb my enthusiasm

and appetite for living.
They gave me a job
doing handout pamphlets

and fielding calls
for planned parenthood.
I was encouraged

to be sexually active
and given contraceptives.
Then one night

while my parents were sleeping
my psychiatrist fucked me.
