Title: Block Five

Structured and individualized
Clinically clinical
Drop in to die here
Try not to be cynical

We all age

Aging body, aging mind
Fragility, depression
Book in for half a day
We’ll solve your aggression

One less thing to worry about

Partial hospitalization programs
Getting to grips
No problem enrolling
Reserve your feed drips

Eat well

Psychiatry thrown in
At this price that’s cheap
Pay by installments
Trade in your jeep

Nowhere else to go these days

We’re here to please
We’ll help you to stand
Impatient inpatients
can pay ninety grand

For less

Hey and we’ll all smile
As they wheel you in
Shake hands with your comrades
Their skin has worn thin

Knuckle busters

Put on your gown now
You sure look the part
We’ll stick in a needle
And steal your warm heart

Bless

Structured and individualized
Clinically clinical
Drop in to die here
Try not to be cynical
