The Hand


There’s something taking over you,

You start to get an itch;

Trying just to shut it out

Your fingers start to twitch.

Your hand belongs to someone else,

It’s just ignoring you,

You’re having zero influence

On what it’s going to do.

It’s working on it’s own designs,

Not responding to a thought;

In something you don’t understand

You find you have been caught.

It’s searching for a certain thing,

One that it can’t find,

It’s dragging you around the house

As if you’ve lost your mind.

This hand, it wants to arm itself,

It’s looking for a knife,

It has quite decided that

You’re going to take your life.

But now that gun’s come in to view

Its plans are so much bigger,

You find that you have picked it up,

Your finger’s on the trigger.

No one would believe it,

You never were depressed

But this hand, it’s taken over and

You find you’ve failed its test.

So beware to all you readers,

Don’t have weapons in your view,

You’ll never know when it may come --

This hand, it might test you.
