toilet routine

Psychiatry 2: Student Daze – Poem 20 


twenty minutes to lunch
time to toilet the psycho-geriatrics

some are wheeled to the bathroom
then transferred to a commode

some are helped
into a cubicle

one mumbles to herself

mum mum mum mum
mum mum mum mum

and leaves wet sock prints
all the way from her lounge chair
down the corridor
and into the bathroom

for her
the signal that it is toilet time
is also the signal
to wee
