Today is depressing
it’s like someone is pressing
the levers to move all my limbs
and I have lost control.

The doctor said you’ve got catarrh
I laughed, haha, I know
that’s in the Middle East.

And it’s raining which is rapidly
draining my battery,
luckily I can recharge.

but that’s not the point,
that lever controls that joint,
see I am
learning even while yearning
for Monday to go away.
