James and Lucia

My daughter was schizophrenic

A great influence on me

So much so, I do declare

We had an upside family tree

She threw up then threw a chair

Cut the wires of the telephone

Set fire to all doorways

So she would be left alone

Scrutinised and analysed

I feared for my career

C.J. had her committed

Both to an asylum and to history

1904 the first walk of him

1982 the last dance of her

For 78 years my readers rejoiced

Yet my heart never once did stir
