[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]
