Writing Letters To People and Burning Them

by Albert Semple, 27 November 2022

  1. My therapist told me for difficult folk,
  2. To write them all letters, and then, up in smoke,
  3. You set them on fire and watch them all burn.
  4. You'll find that your grievances never return.

  5. So with those instructions I sat down to write
  6. Then as she suggested, I set them alight.
  7. Some people died screaming, some died in their sleep.
  8. I've still got those letters stacked up in a heap.
