The stay

Locked windows locked doors

No wall to wall on any floors

Tiles of biege and walls of green

everything is sterile and clean

Padded chairs arranged in a circle

That is where we wait for med call

people often come and go

Some are friend and some are foe

Some are far too ill to tell

Some fight and kick and scream and yell

I spend my time with a coloring book

Suddenly everyone else is hooked

see the doctor every day

Ask how much longer you must stay

Make some friends while you are in

Ones you will never see again

Groups all day and into night

10:30 turn off the lights

Cooperate every day

That is the way to shorten the stay
