On Attention Deficit Disorder

I know what it’s like when children are classified as hyperactive or borderline hyperactive. Nowadays reactions to behaviours are quick and judgements come piling by the time a child is four.



They must have inherited this, this

madness, a disorder? to be sure-

An inability to sit straight

To be coffined/confined


Like fish in a bowl

And be content.


Fish cry

Didn’t you know?

They perambulate themselves

Into hypnosis,

Acquire neurosis.


And the children

Grow up.
