Possessed

What should I do? I think I'm possessed!
Please do not laugh, for this is no jest.
Well if I were you, I suppose I'd be skeptical.
But I'm not saying this just to make a big spectacle.

When I want to study after school,
My legs run me right outside to the pool.
When I want to clean my messy room,
My hands refuse to touch the broom.
(Instead they grab the remote control
Or take out the video game console.)
When I want to eat my beets,
My mouth says it will only take sweets.

What should I do? I think I'm possessed!
Is there no remedy you could suggest?
What's that, you say? Discipline is the best?
Now I'm getting quite stressed, and I must take a rest.
