OCD (Clean Jane)

This is how it started

This is how it all started

I am not startled

A-r-r-a-n-g-e

Rearrange

Arrange

R-e-a-r-r-a-n-g-e

I am here

I am there

I am walking forward

Backward

Forward

All this is in my head

This is ALL IN MY HEAD

This is how it started

All these must me p-e-r-f-e-c-t

Compulsory

I am not sorry

Kitchen; spotless

Clean

I have to check again. Please

Table mats; colors match!

Oh dear, I see a patch

Clean

Clean

CLEAN

I am walking forward

I have to walk backward

Door; shut

I am looking at my shoe rack

They need me back…

R-E-A-R-R-A-N-G-E

MAN IN POWER

Standard

Women: He
walked
from dusk
to dawn in purple damask

All: He must be rich

Men: He
smiled
for hours
exhibiting his powers

All: He must be mad

Youths: He
killed
for festivities
concealing shady activities

All: He must be a snitch

Women: He
jeered
behind closed doors
and claps as tears pours

All: He must be bad

Youths: He
drank
ate and laughed
sang and laughed
his heart pounded

All: He must be sick

Men: He
frowned
his heart pounded
his body surrounded

Women: He must be dying

Men: He is dying!

Youths: Must he die?

All: He has died!

Silence
