Ode to Epileptologists!

Confined to an 8 × 8 room

Perceived by technology 24 × 7

I lay there waiting doomed like

The condemned prisoner for hangman's noose.

Glee they take when my body shakes

Their eyes light up when my torso jerks

I bare it all; nothing to hide

No place for my self-esteem to hide.

Forced I am to void my bowels

Where I sleep and eat and rest

Prison inmates are better off

At least they see sky through bars.

A buzzer I have for all auras

Press and they come to harass me

Questions from all sides CBI like

Poor me! left verbally challenged.

Night I try to get some sleep

Cruelly woken up by a tonic cry

One next room is shaking all over

All I know next is mine.

Light they throw upon my face

It nearly blinds me, I screw my eyes

They continue with some abstract art

Next I pant; dogs put to shame.

After days of ordeal I'm informed

Cryptogenic-refractory-uncertain localization

Greek and Latin its all to me

I'm glad it's over, I'm free.
