COLD CONDITIONING OF THE NOT-SO-DISTANT PAST

Screen Shot 2015-11-20 at 21.14.56

They were conditioning,
conditioning attempts,
attempting to
condition them
under their conditions 
with stimuli, using stimulus 
trying to stimulate
his scrotum,
shock his scrotum,
to shock him,
shocking, 
shocking stimuli
of scrotums on screens
Slide after slide 
Shocking slides,
shoving more shocks
with each scrotum
into scrotums,
they called it
a mental disorder
order dismantled
ordered treatments
aversion,
aversive treatments
treat, treating
treacherous torture,
some transplanted testicles
giving gays boys

straight balls
to beef them
better then
push them
from being pansies
into to eating pussies,
they called them psychos
labeled them under
Psychosocial maladjustment 
social adjustment needed
psychos shocking society,
shocked into submission
stitched out of condition
Converting conditions
Conditioned converting 
Electroconvulsive converters
Causing convulsions
correcting characters
hunting the homo from the man
and hailing the new hetero
shocked, stunned,
silenced, desensitised,
submissive under stimulus
sectioned by stimulus
in days where we’ve still
to gain distance,
when being different
required medical assistance.
