My Speed

My Speed

My legs jump sitting
Brain reaches orbit in all five  directions
Lying flat on my bed

I know I’ve got ADD
My girlfriend says I’ve ADD
I’m sixty and ADD is me

So I call up this guy to get some pills
And he says he needs to ask me questions:
Like what school was like when I was six
Do you remember your damned childhood?
Who the hell wants to?

And he asks – me – how much I drink?
I tell him enough to feel happy
Drinking is bitching,  glory, pleasure
Saying goodbye to all that ails

I give him half the truth
But the prick won’t write me speed
Like I’ve never tried?
I can drink a whole day on one tab
Fly so high nothing shoots me down
Pull in so much positive energy
I can pump the city power plant

I really want to tell this creep
Live in my body, lead my life
Then say you can’t give me what I need
I’m a consumer, I’m a sovereign
I know what key fits my slot

Mr. Doctor Man, gatekeeper
I could do your game blindfolded
AIs test better than you

So to reach my need I need real speed
A friend shows me how:
Check the doctor reviews
Look who’s rated last
Tell your tale and get the pills

Once I get what I need
I’ll feel well beyond well
Driving, driving across the night
A fantastic, breathtaking, amazing sight
