"Doctor, I'm having trouble sleeping
I'm beset by creative thought processes
afflicted by rhyming couplets and alliteration
I was humble but now I mumble and fumble
my life's stumbling and crumbling".

"Please continue Mr Neilson"

"Thanks Doc, I can't fit food in my mouth
it's full of words struggling for oration
to a receptive, perceptive audience
all fruits are similes to me
all vegetables have become metaphors
and some not safe for work.

"Ah ha, I think I know what's going on here
take this list of phone numbers and website addresses.
I recommend open microphone performance for your condition, particularly those with supportive, amiable hosts, there are many in Greater Manchester, you should find it cathartic and it should help"

"OK doc, what exactly is your diagnosis?"

"You are a poetaholic"
Sometimes it feels that way :)
