by Robert Paul Gass (aka Imagines Vinco aka Ultionem Vinco)
The medications caused the stomache pain
And cruel orders forced ingesting stress
Confusing mind removing shelter sane
For mask of sadomasichism's dress.
Refusing next in ward enforced the staff
Around the bed commanding butt as bare
To drain marcessant humanism half
As needle pushed the serum over scare.
Before the shower spine to twist in pain
And walking back askew to room afraid
Of end with crippled shaker left as sane
For hours to writhe as lost to lack of aid.
The covenantal cost was placed to bar
With pain to suffer more as weight on scar.
