a dead parrot

Psychiatry 2: Student Daze – Poem 19 


the old enfeebled
are seated
in a quadrangle of chairs
placed in the centre of the dayroom

old schizophrenics
and dementias

…this is a dead
parrot…

disembodied discussion
about a prone norwegian blue
fills the ward
from end to end
through overhead speakers

today’s In-Charge
is a monty python fan

the rest of us
better learn to be
