Me Myself And I by Alan Bevridge 1987 (Drawing)
Three clown heads above a brain,
The brain has a sword stuck in it,
The brain sits on a chessboard,
Among the chess pieces are a syringe, pills and cigarettes,
Clown on the left cries with wild afro hair,
Clown in the middle has multi-spiked hair and demented eyes,
Clown on the right has multi spiked afro with balls attached,
He also has a demented grin on his face,
The sword causes the brain to split,
Blood seeps towards the chessmen,
Pills spill out of bottles,
Almost soaking into the pool by the syringe.
