Mankind is filled with fears of every sort;
To be a phobic is a trendy craze.
Each one can find a group that lends support,
That gives them courage in their darkest days.
A fear of dirt or sea or cows or heights,
A fear of numbers, letters, squares or spheres -
Though many things can give a dreadful fright,
Take courage; others share your many fears.
But I am different the phobic masses;
The twelve-step program didn't work for me.
I tried support groups, and the many classes;
I couldn't go, nor could I stay, you see,
For I am not just very claustrophobic,
I'm also quite a bit agoraphobic.
