One More Appointment

Appointment day
Not gonna miss this one
Meds ruining her life
“Can’t think” she says
“Can barely eat” she says
Let’s change that

Answer the survey honestly, for a change
Conditioned to lie
Do you have a plan? It asks
“You could say that” she says
It’s time for her medicine

“Hello, how’re you doing?” he asks
“Fine” she says
Let’s check her results
She knows what this means
She knows where he’ll send her next

The past has taught her something
“Succeed or suffer”
The past has taught her something
“Don’t tell anyone”

Well she did tell someone this time
Turns out she downed a handful right before
There’s no time
“This should do it” she whispers
Falling to the floor
Heading elsewhere
