PLEASE SEE BELOW

they want
to psychoanalyze
us

to cure
us

but the
most basic

the most
profane

of answers
for the majority
of our actions

for the majority
of our idiosyncrasies

are that
our innate instincts
drive us

confound us

as much
as we wish
to ignore
them

fear

anger

hunger

exhaustion

are our
prime
motivators

normally lying
well beneath
any superficial
niceties

our problems
arise
when our natural
behaviors
put us into conflict
with society

with loved
ones

then
there is something
wrong
with us

we must
be sick

we must
be treated
for our
sickness

when all
that we
really need

is a
simple
sandwich
