Asylum.

Can you
Hear the screams
Of people
Who have lost their dreams.
Drug them
Slug them
If they react.
Struggling
To keep intact
Some respect.
Stoned and wrecked
And
Dribbling like a child.
Little children
Meek and mild.
In an adult frame.
Mentally lame.
They still have a name.
Chain smoking
Rain soaking
Their inner peace.
What release
Like a bird from a cage
Can satisfy
Their impotent rage.
What pill
Can still
A racing heart.
Where is the start
That they need.
Raging somnambulist
versus
Ageing psychiatrist.
Cattle
Battle
With suicide.
Cowering
When they've nothing to hide
God look down
On them all.
The sane are locked in this hall.
While the mad
Still merge
In the mall.
