Zoanthropy: a monomania in which a person believes himself changed into an animal and acts like one

Gyles' poem this week comes from one of our Purple People! It's called 'My Worry Tree' by Carol Mugano

I have a little worry tree,

I was given by a friend.

If I didn't have my worry tree,

I'd go right round the bend.

When things are getting stressful, 

and particularly manic,

I know I have my worry tree,

so there's no need to panic.


I'm so fortunate to have this tree.

It's such a special kind. 

It's not growing in my garden,

it's just planted in my mind.

So, whenever I am anxious, 

and I don't know what to do,

I will go and find my worry tree, 

and my big scissors, too. 

Then, the subject of my worry, 

that is causing so much grief,

I will scoop it up so gently, 

and I'll place it on a leaf. 

Then, with my enormous scissors, 

The offending leaf I'll sever, 

and I'll watch my worry blow away,

to disappear forever.
