Be careful when you fight the monsters, lest you become one ~ Friedrich Nietzsche (1844 – 1900)
He caught me by my hair. The lightning struck repeatedly. I felt my brain sizzle.
All the monsters fled leaving me flaccid.
The exorcist woke me up
At another session, after 3 months ….
I was made to wait outside the door. The surroundings reminded me of a hospital.
The door opened and somebody was wheeled out on a stretcher trolley. The exorcist walked besides him. He was reassuring the victim. ‘Don’t worry, sir. I have forced many demons to flee, just a turn of the knob and they leave for other worlds’.
I saw the many demons he had exorcised sitting on his shoulders.
Exactly three years seven months and sixteen days from today – I saw him lying on the table all braced up and another technician turning the knob to evict the demons.
The doctor in green gown said, ‘be careful with the pulse of the current – poor chap he used to be the chief ECT technician here; got carried away and started a side business of exorcism’.
I hope the demons have not come back to torment me or is it a side effect of the shock therapy I received.
