i am tubing.
rubber tubing.
(i apologise for bruising)
now i'll penetrate your nose, so
i am loyal, i am faithful, i am filled with your nutrition
i am here to keep you breathing under just this one condition:
do not blame me
if you gain,
do not blame me for the pain
i'm the fault of doctors, nurses, interns, treatments inhumane
i know that you aren't hungry
yes, i know your stomach's full
you can tell them it's bull, that it's bull, that it's bull
you can tell them it's the pills
that you cannot stand to eat
you can cry and scream and thrash and kick your sorry little feet
it doesn't make a difference
they will not turn their heads
my dear, just close your eyes and we will lie here in this bed.
