I have a blog feature that's had thirty instances?  Wow.  I'm choosing Severed Hand this week -- an ode to psychotropics.  "What is human, what is more?  I'll answer this when I get home."

Big man stands behind an open door
Said, "Leave your lady on the cement floor."
"Got some kicks, want to take a ride?"
I said, "Yeah!"
"Take your pick, leave yourself behind."
I said, "Yeah!"

I've no fear but for falling down
So look out below!  I am falling now!
Oh please understand I just need, my friend,
A way -- a way -- a way home

Tried to walk, found a severed hand
Recognized it from the wedding band
Said "It's ok, do you want some more?"
I said, "Yeah!"
"You'll see dragons after 3 or 4."
I said, "Yeah!"

"Understand I'm not falling down,"
I said.  "Look around, the room's taller now"
I can't close my eyes, 'cause I see the sound in waves --
In waves -- lets me stay calm

If I don't lose control
Explore and not explode
A preternatural other plane
With the power to maintain

Like a tear in all we know
Once dissolved we are free to grow
What is human, what is more?
I'll answer this when I get home
