C. B. Anderson: Psyched

I’d like to spend some time with Sigmund Freud
To talk about the ego and the id,
About the vivid dreams we both enjoyed,
Unveiling deep desires their symbols hid.

It isn’t hard to understand cathexis –
Men do it every hour of every day –
But it’s a total mystery why sex is
So hard to come by. Willingness to pay,

Of course, makes all the difference. Carl Jung
Is someone else I’d really like to spend
Some time with, just so I could say, “Achtung,
Mein Herr! It would be wise for you to tend

Your totems, lest Unconscious (the Collective)
Revive the myth your theories are defective.”
