In Hospital

I heard a schizophrenic
Patient say inner beauty
Is better than putting on
A plastered face

That a little electricity
In the right place
Can make a difference
Even if only a microvolt

Piles of cases, papers
Stitched into a history
Peppered with mild doses
Of diazepam and loxapine

In the corner sits
A standby defibrillator
The switch with a red light
But can precaution
save the fated?

I do not know.

But I do hope.

So I started interning at a neuro-psychiatric hospital and this was inspired from the happenings inside.
