I accidentally threw out the original poem in a school-is-out-must-throw-all-notes-away frenzy. So here we have my remake, inspired by my Health teacher talking about conflicting drugs in the body. The words were rumbling around in my head for hours.
There’s a civil war brewing inside my brain
Like fiery tongues licking at my temples
Conflicting, convulsing, consuming, contracting
Charge! Fight! Retreat! Retreat!
There’s a civil war raging inside my skull
I’ll take this pill to stop the battle
Put up your white flags
If only for a little while
