King Bonk - Day 3 / 21 October 2014

So a thirty day test to continue to write
a poem a day to capture insight
Let's see what effects these new pills start to bring
And if I can still perform and sing

I feel okay though it's only day three
It's normally about 4 weeks till the med start to work
But right now I'm fine head doesn't hurt
I'm not depressed I'm just in my low
Worried about mania when the prozac starts to show

BEWARE when the cycle is in full swing
And I'm up in the clouds - the bipolar king.
