I will fire at will...

Post by secretnude » Mon Apr 28, 2014 4:57 am

It was freezing cold
and we Cats
can adapt to that
since the winters in our lost Planet
Krat
could get
slightly colder
than that.

I fired a pulse
from my plasma gun to repulse
a shifty
Shapeshifter
that
was sluggish since the Shapeshifter's
metabolic rate slowed
due to conditions that
does give rise to snow.

We did know
that
these cold blooded
Shapeshifters
are indeed cold blooded
for whatever counts as their blood
that
now floods
this HeavyCat
Space Transport
compartment.

I received compliments
as I reported
our first recent Shapeshifter kill
as I continued to fire at will.

I show no mercy to cold blooded beings!

Post by secretnude » Mon Apr 28, 2014 5:29 am

There were three
shifty
Shapeshifters
in this HeavyCat
Compartment that
you see
are now either dying or dead
as the Shapeshifters
bled
on the floor.

I went for the Compartment door
to kill some more
Shapeshifters
on another floor.

A Shapeshifter
on another floor
begged for mercy but I had none
since my Cat
Commander
is gone.

I wore the skin
of my dead Commander
that
was a friendly Cat.

I pointed
my plasma gun
that didn't disappoint
and the Shapeshifter
bled at the point
where the hot plasma burned the Shapeshifter's
skin
like the rest of Shapeshifter's
dead kin.

Be naked and/or happy or be dead!

Post by secretnude » Mon Apr 28, 2014 5:54 am

I walked totally naked
towards a border town and being naked
made the Zombies
assume that I have been Zombiefied
as Happy Zombies
do have the tendency
to get totally naked
due to hypersexuality.

I found an abandoned food
store
with an open door
and I grabbed a bag of food
that I assumed is still good.

I ate
some stuff that I would normally hate
but of late
I am starving
and hence I was carving
some animals earlier that I ate
and they were rats
that
didn't taste good
and the rats
put me in a bad mood.

Comfort food puts me in a good mood...

Post by secretnude » Mon Apr 28, 2014 6:11 am

I ate comfort food
that placed me in a good mood
before I left the abandoned food
store
with an open door.

I thought
that being totally naked
had brought
me this far
and so far
I haven't met anyone
with an adverse reaction to me being naked
which means that
Humanity
in this area is gone.

I may be the sole
immune specimen of Humanity
in a sea of Happy Zombie souls
that are wildly partying out of control.

I did spot a Demeter Patrol
Drone
which meant I was close to the zone
were Humanity
still had control.

A bipolar bare naked guy that cried for a Drone AI.

Post by secretnude » Mon Apr 28, 2014 6:30 am

I
waved while I
was naked
at the Demeter
Patrol Drone
that is monitoring this border
zone.

I
hope that the Patrol Drone
AI
will flag me as still Human
even if I
am naked
like many
of the naked
hypersexual Happy Zombies
that does walk in this territory
and so I
did my best to cry
for the cameras that are the eyes
of the Drone AI.

I
am a bipolar guy
and it's easy to see why
I
was able to survive this far
when most of my
depressive friends
already met their end
in Happy Zombie
hands.

I was hosed down while naked and bound by ropes.

Post by secretnude » Mon Apr 28, 2014 6:51 am

A helicopter
from Demeter's
Planetary Capital City
that's still controlled by Humanity
soon rescued me.

I was to remain for several days
in quarantine
until they say
that I am clean.

I was glad to shower
in the sole remaining City
with consistent electrical power
but this City
does have food
shortages which isn't good
and people
are always in a bad mood.

I found
that the people
around here don't trust me
and they
told me
that I had to be bound
by ropes
until they
hope
to get my virus load
and they
had guns that are loaded.

Some Happy Zombies are too happy to report to work.

Post by secretnude » Mon Apr 28, 2014 7:49 am

Other Cities on Demeter
maybe extremely happy
due to the Happy Zombie
infection but power
and water
services may sometimes be down
since the Zombies
may not be around
to do their duties.

The Happy Zombies
could just be around
partying
and being
plainly happy.

Demeter's Capital City
is a model of efficiency
except for the deficiency
of food
which isn't any good.

I was fed meager
rations that I was eager
to eat
that didn't quite defeat
my hungry belly.

However,
at least I am no longer
smelly
as I get regularly washed
totally naked as other people watch.

Shifty Alien Shapeshifter Prisoners of War.

Post by secretnude » Mon Apr 28, 2014 8:11 am

I was given a containment vessel that
the Xenobiologist Cat
told me
would be
a good place to hold Shapeshifters
for his Shapeshifter
studies that
so far
were only limited
to dead
Shapeshifters.

I ordered a sluggish
Shapeshifter
currently crawling
on the floor like a Terran Slug
to crawl
into the vessel or get a slug
from my gun
and be gone.

We learned that the cold does make
the Shapeshifters
not take
vile
projectiles
as well
since the Shapeshifters
feel unwell.

The Shapeshifter
obeyed
without delay
and crawled
into the containment vessel
through a hole like a blood vessel.

Let Shapeshifter experiments proceed that are vile indeed

Post by secretnude » Mon Apr 28, 2014 8:31 am

I was given a Shapeshifter
containment vessel
with a tiny hole like a blood vessel
that
had a one way valve that
strictly
physically restricts
the flow of matter
to the only direction that matters.

I was told
not to hold
too many
living shifty
Shapeshifters
in the containment vessel
since this vessel
model
could only hold three
Shapeshifters
that
will no longer be free.

I took three
Shapeshifters
in the
containment vessel
to our Xenobiologist Cat
that
was quite happy to get
living and sentient shifty
Shapeshifter
specimens to let
his experiments proceed
that
could possibly be vile indeed.

I consent to my misery without dissent.

Post by secretnude » Mon Apr 28, 2014 10:20 am

My Viral Load
was on
the borderline.

I had to sign on
the line
that I consent
to my misery
without dissent.

I was subjected to loads
of misery
to be
free
of what they say
is an 'Infectious Viral Load'
which is what I have today.

I was sleep
deprived and they do keep
me naked all day
with cold temperatures
that are surely
unbearable
by someone who is bare
naked
and barely
eating
at all.

I could recall
being
hungry and naked
before but I was free
and I did get to enjoy happy
times with Happy
Zombies.

Shapeshifter can't eat to defeat this containment vessel

Post by secretnude » Mon Apr 28, 2014 10:54 am

The Shapeshifter containment vessel
is superhydrophobic
in the inside as the hydrophobic
walls
as I recall
makes the Shapeshifter
unable to grab and eat
this containment vessel
that the Shapeshifters
cannot defeat.

The Shapeshifters
may indeed
try to eat
each other.

We're depriving the Shapeshifters
of food
which cannot be good
but we do feed
them occasionally indeed.

We are doing terrible deeds
to the Shapeshifters
indeed
since the walls
of the containment
vessel can carry current
to shock
them for ad hoc
reasons.

I do find
it hard to find
a reason
for some of the more inclement
experiments.

Let us toss a Shifty Shapeshifter into Outer Space...

Post by secretnude » Mon Apr 28, 2014 11:24 am

We subjected
our shifty
Shapeshifter
test subjects
to temperature
and pressure
extremes
and these beings
are extremely
durable
and able
to survive
alive
even in a cold vacuum.

I do wonder if these sentient beings
were genetically
engineered
to be practically
resilient
to the environmental extremes
of space
even if we creamed these beings
when they faced
temperatures that are cold.

The cold
is a weakness of being
a cold blooded
being
since cold blooded
metabolism does radically slow
in temperatures
that make snow
but these beings
do stay alive by using
sugars as antifreeze
in temperatures
that are freezing.

A free floating black ball in Outer Space as I do recall

Post by secretnude » Mon Apr 28, 2014 12:00 pm

I saw a free floating
Shapeshifting
Sentient Being
tossed out of an airlock to face
Outer Space.

The Shapeshifting
Sentient being
survived
by slowly changing
into a ball
that I recall
exposes the least surface
area to Space.

The Shapeshifter's skin
in Space
turned black
and hard but the skin
turned back
to a healthy
and shiny
white
when the conditions are right.

We ensured that
the temperatures
are always cold to be sure
that
we Cats
can keep our
Shapeshifter
pets under
our
control.

I believe that
our Cat
Patrols
have all the Shapeshifters
in our ships
under control.

I started a joke but the joke was on me...

Post by secretnude » Mon Apr 28, 2014 12:27 pm

The Medical Team
beamed
and inform me
of my
duty
to provide
stool, urine and semen samples
as they took blood samples.

I had
nowhere to hide
as I filled
the sample
containers at will.

I'm still
pretty much naked and bound
and I hoped that they would have found
a reason to release me by now
somehow.

The lack of privacy
and the indecency
of being poked
was only relieved by
my
cracking a joke
that made someone in this Facility
laugh
but the Facility
Staff
didn't laugh
as the Happy Virus does spread
through laughter
as I dread.

My Killing Jokes

Post by secretnude » Mon Apr 28, 2014 2:25 pm

Someone in the staff
found more reason not to laugh
as they recognized that
I
was the reason why
so many people died.

I
was a Comedian that
was on tour
until people surely
didn't need me
anymore to be happy
due to the Happy Zombie
Epidemic
that became a Pandemic.

I was an asymptomatic
carrier
due to my Bipolar Disorder
and I did have a world tour
that
for sure
did spread
the 'Infectious Laughter'
that
people now dread.

I used laughter
to hide
my depression inside
but the Happy
Zombie
Virus also did hide
in my sorry hide.

Apple say think different.

Post by secretnude » Mon Apr 28, 2014 2:33 pm

Apple say think
different.

I do think
that I think
different
from most other
people
even if the only Apple products
I ever
owned were a couple of iPods.

I think
it's quite odd
for people
to think
of crazy
as bad like a defective product
but without the crazy
ones where would the world be?

I maybe
obviously
an undiagnosed bipolar guy
and I don't see why
I must conform
to the traditional
societal
expectation that I must reform
and perform
some tricks
like taking a pill
to fix
my ills
or a take talking cure
that's quite unsure.
"The creative elements needed to produce humour are strikingly similar to those characterising the cognitive style of people with psychosis – both schizophrenia and bipolar disorder," said Professor Gordon Claridge from Oxford University's department of experimental psychology. He is also one of the three co-authors of the findings, which are published in the British Journal of Psychiatry.

"Although schizophrenic psychosis itself can be detrimental to humour, in its lesser form it can increase people's ability to associate odd or unusual things or to think 'outside the box'. Equally, 'manic thinking', which is common in people with bipolar disorder, may help people combine ideas to form new, original and humorous connections," Claridge added.

The Bipolar Poets' Society

Post by secretnude » Mon Apr 28, 2014 3:29 pm

The Bipolar Poets' Society did meet
and it was quite neat
as one set
did get
manically creative
while the other set
did get
nothing done
and wanted this silly meeting
to be quickly done
so that they could be gone.

It was wise
and quite nice
that this building does prohibit guns
otherwise
this nice
Society
might soon be
a Dead Poets' Society.

It is hard to manage
people that are self absorbed and engaged
either in their own manic creative affairs
or wallowing deep in despair.

Maybe in the end nobody would care
about the Bipolar poets' affairs.
Is there a connection between mental health problems and poetry? The contemporary British poet Roddy Lumsden has written that "a poet confessing to mental illness is like a weight lifter admitting to muscles," a statement that personally makes me wince, but it is undoubtedly true that a great many poets are considered to have suffered from mental illness; John Clare, Robert Lowell, Sylvia Plath and Theodore Roethke to name just a few. Is there something about the emotional extremes of bipolar disorder, for example, that is conducive to poetic expression? Or is it the other way round? Can writing poetry send you over the edge?

The hate is fresh like the buried Cat and Shapeshifter flesh

Post by secretnude » Mon Apr 28, 2014 4:24 pm

I befriended a former
foe
after
I got to know
that
not all Shapeshifters
are shifty
and I call my Shapeshifter
friend
Shifty.

I could depend
on Shifty
the Shapeshifter
to assist in ship
repairs
as we both
despair
at the fate
of our races that we both
hate
having both
lost
our home worlds at great
cost.

The hate
could dissipate
in a generation or two
but in my view
the hate
is fresh
like the buried Cat
and Shapeshifter flesh
that
I do propose
may not yet
have decomposed
in a Planet
that
we Cats
tried to get.

The Proceedings of the Meetings of the Bipolar Poets

Post by secretnude » Tue Apr 29, 2014 12:04 am

The Bipolar Poets'
Society publishes an Annual
Journal
of the Proceedings
of the Meetings
of the Bipolar Poets
in rhyming couplets
or quatrains
that does strain
ones brain.

It was strange to have an Annual
Journal
that does strain
one's brain
with rhyming schemes
that could be evil schemes
to drain
the reader's brain
of any sort of sanity
and cause more insanity
that could be at the root
of much great poetry.

Poetic
root
words do shoot
into many rhyming offshoots
that could make you shoot
your foot
as your sanity does drain
from your brain
that's going insane.

The Bipolar Poets' Society does support Bipolar research

Post by secretnude » Tue Apr 29, 2014 1:20 am

I was reading
the Proceedings
of the Meetings
of the Bipolar Poets
and I did get
slightly amused
and slightly confused
that our membership is in flux.

I do know that being Bipolar
sucks
and I have paid my annual dues
to the Bipolar Poets' Society
to renew
my membership and subscription
to the Bipolar Poets' Journal
even if I don't take my prescription
pills
that make me chill
but slightly ill.

The Bipolar Poets' Society
does support Bipolar research
but the search
for a cure
might for sure
lead to a decline in Bipolar poets
to our great regret.
