There are gates, doors,
Passwords and coded locks.
She has been locked away.
I’ve called several times.
Her nurses and guards
Contend it is for her own good,
She cries in the dark.

She knew she must serve
Her sentence, let them
Find what had been concealed
And take it away. It was dark;
Her room without comfort,
And her mouth was dry.
I called her nurse

And bade her turn on a light,
Give her a book, let Susan rinse
Her mouth with water. It isn’t
Only her. I’ve also been
Judged, declared infirm
From caring for her, and
No time off for good behavior.
