Auntie Mary's Suffering

 

  " No-one should have to go through what I went 

through. " Auntie Mary complains to me. " No-one

should have to go through what I'm going through

now, having bits of freight train in their brains, 

causing them to get these awful diseases that I've

got. "

  But now she reckons Dr Buddha is curing her. Claw

reckons she's got a screw loose, but he don't like

telling me that 'cause I get angry and scream at him.

Sometimes Claw tells me that Dr Buddha can't cure

Auntie Mary 'cause he's only a hypnotist, and he can't 

prescribe drugs, or operate or nothing, to get the bits

of freight train out of Auntie Mary's brain.

  Calw tells me she needs a good proper doctor, a brain

surgeon or someone, and that anyhow she's probley

getting migraines from the change of liife, whatever that 

is, and Claw says he can't be bothered explaining it to

me, and that I should pay more attention to the science 

teacher, and I just tell him he's talking crap.
