So are you really my ally? – a poem

Content note: ableism, saneist words used in a reclaimed way.

Do not call Trump a crazy psycho,
And then come to me as an ally.
Citing famous words of
‘I am here for you’
Because could you bare my crazy psycho reality.

Do not cheer on May and her Tories,
And then come to me as an ally.
Quoting famous words of
‘Reach out, tell your GP’
Because there are services being slashed left right and centre
Money being stripped away.

So who exactly do I reach out to?
Because it’s not you
And it’s not the services no more
So tell me please.
Are you really there for my crazy, mad, psycho reality
Or are you just quoting the same old thing because it’s easy to say
‘I am here if you need me’

So are you really my ally?
