Antisocial Personality Disorder
Written by Russell   
Thursday, 12 July 2007 23:49
Though defiant from the beginning
And rebellious to the end,
Such may be selectively compliant
And use sweet words to commend.
 
Attention Defficit-Hyperactivity Disorder
Written by Russell   
Thursday, 12 July 2007 23:49
Bouncing babies
Are just cute as they can be,
And adults love to give full attention
To the busy little bees.
 
Autistic Disorder
Written by Russell   
Thursday, 12 July 2007 23:49
Apparent indifference
To what other's say and do,
Marked by avoidant eyes
And abhorrence of what's new.

Written by Russell   
Thursday, 12 July 2007 23:49

Soon gets out of hand
As the body keeps on growing
And the child is the man.

But ever two steps behind,

As well as any mind.

Offer fruitful ways to be against,
Because this self-possessed loner
Nitpicks any difference sensed.
