One Poem by Bob Eager


Trash Bag Therapy

Break free from your demons;

Stop them telling you are trash-

Regulate, Rediscover and Repeat!

Surround yourself with a trash bag.

Enclose your being in the confines of plastic,

Circumvent your inner turmoil…

Shout you are No longer trapped in circumstances!

Rip and release:

Peak through the hole You created.

Strip the bag away with your bare hands…

Slip into the onslaught of an Emotional relapse

The bag has been torn away-

Lastly tell yourself,

Congratulations for engaging in

Pat yourself on the back theatre!
