My brain has been rewired they say
Not the man I was back in the day

Seems there’s this amygdala section
That exists for my protection

All my junk is stored in there
It reminds me to beware

I’m different than I used to be
All because of this PTSD

Sometimes my circuits overload
My brain no longer meets code

I tried meds but they don’t work
Sometimes I think I’m going berserk

Can’t sleep much at night
I wake up in a fright

Is the amygdala vital for life
Let’s remove it to avoid this strife

Don't want to trip the master breaker
That would mean I've met my maker

22 vets each day flip their master switch
Their circuits hit a major glitch
