3 O’CLOCK APPOINTMENT, Matthew Armagost

3 o'clock Appointment
by Matthew Armagost

Now I'm no doctor, Doctor,
 so please stop me
  if I'm off base,
   but there's something 
    that must be 
something I need
 off my chest:

You tell me
 there's something 
  wrong with the way 
   that I think;
    That my logic has become faulty; 
That there must be
     “A Wire Crossed,”
     “A Short Circuit,”
     “A Blown Fuse,”
     “A Loose Screw.”
So tell me then,
 if I agree,
  doesn't that mean
   that I'm
          Actually Alright?
