    Tell me lies about ME

    I was run over by the truth one day
    Ever since I’ve had ME I’ve thought this way;
    So you stop my mouth with CBT
    Tell me lies about ME

    Heard the alarm clock while screaming in pain
    Couldn’t get up, fell asleep again;
    So you splint my legs with GET
    Stop my mouth with CBT
    Tell me lies about ME

    Endless Forms are all I see
    Blatant persecution by the DWP;
    So you fill my ears with ATOS lies
    Splint my legs with GET
    Stop my mouth with CBT
    Tell me lies about ME

    I smell something burning, suspect it’s just my brain
    GP says it’s my imagination - another bogus claim;
    So you ignore the evidence before your eyes
    Fill my ears with ATOS lies
    Splint my legs with GET
    Stop my mouth with CBT
    Tell me lies about ME

    Where was the government at the time of the crime?
    Drafting NICE Guidelines – what a waste of time;
    So you falsely claim that nobody dies
    Ignore the evidence before your eyes
    Fill my ears with ATOS lies
    Splint my legs with GET
    Stop my mouth with CBT
    Tell me lies about ME

    You send your psychiatrists in, you take your conscience out
    You take the human being and you mangle it about;
    So you Section me to stop my cries
    Falsely claim that nobody dies
    Ignore the evidence before your eyes
    Fill my ears with ATOS lies
    Splint my legs with GET
    Stop my mouth with CBT
    And pray to hell you don’t get ME!

    Based on the Poem ‘To whom it may concern’ by Adrian Mitchell (1964)

    It's great. I think it can be recited as a rap song, too, an angry one
