Fire Pit: A Clanging poem

Our poetry teacher works with mentally ill people and a common manifestation of schizophrenia is clanging, a type of speech where the person mostly talks nonsense but in rhymes.  This poem was written in poetry workshop last night during free write.

fire pit,
spit in my face
pace! space
me out, man
damn I'm real
peel off me, dude,
my mood,you're
lewd, man damn
spit at me
be see me lee
pee on me
wet debt, I'm set!
get regret, hot
fire, inspire
you're all a liar
admire me
