Chocolate-Flavored PTSD

Jun 05, 2020

Frank A. Clark, MD, Clinical Assistant Professor, University of South Carolina School of Medicine – Greenville, SC, presents a timely slice of poetic history.

Parental exhortations transmit incessant psalms to the trepidatious heart illuminated by blue lights.
Posture rapidly disintegrates to fetal position anticipating the dark cloud of death hovering.
A litany of inquiry attacks desensitized anal sphincters requiring diapers for future voyages.

Incredulous noses attempt to sniff out the aptitude of their dark pigmented foes.
Sidewalks wreak of ivory privilege that erupt at the myopic sight of the Ivy-league panther.
A litany of inquiry suppresses dopaminergic zeal that demands a therapeutic potion and unbiased couch.

Contemporary slave owners fill the stands and applaud their athletic specimens.
The patriots shackle the knees and necks of those who attempt to strengthen First Amendment muscles.
A litany of inquiry awakens a historical REM center that produces horrid images requiring a heavenly sedative.
