Prophet of Silence

The story of the Lady in the red hood;

Was in fact about one who suffers from a condition of the mind;

She is hunted by the black wolf that howls at the full moon;

It is a beast that resides deep within the chambers of her psyche;

Stalking her with thoughts of suicidal intent;

It runs in her veins, this disorder called Depression;

And it took her mother and her mother’s mother too;

But they found a way to seize the wolf and slay it;

These Prophets of the Rose;

With a chill pill known as Apo-Amitriptyline;

They skinned the wolf that would have flayed them with razor blade fangs;

And now they have a little peace of mind;

Knowing that the wolf can stalk them no more.

The beast was here all along…
