[If you are easily offended by words, please skip today’s post…  —  KMAB]
the surgeon general has determined
that I am a hazard to my own health
so they took away my razor blades
knives & forks
turned off my gas
electricity
water
(even drained the toilet)
emptied my medicine chest
carried off every scrap of rope
twine
cord
not to mention my bedsheets
handkerchiefs
locked every window and door
now the surgeon general is unable to determine
whether I died from hunger
thirst
exposure
asphyxiation
nasal congestion
or the stench of my own shit

[I don’t know where I found this quote back in my teens, but despite the dystopian imagery, the writing made me laugh out loud.  I don’t laugh at it now, but it still makes me smile (grimly) to think any government could protect us from ourselves.
To be honest, my handwriting is so bad, I may even have the author’s name incorrect.  If anyone knows where this came from or who Ray Toy is, let me know.  I’d love to know more about him.  —  KMAB]
