words hiss into me
sounds from the furnance
echos down the hall
The whispers from the doctors & nurses
(They don't think I hear-but I do)
I can see the pictures inside the paintings
I know what's written on the outside of the windows-
Captive inside- come quick!
I know what those different hall lights mean,
I know why the aides change their shirt colors
You might think I'm stupid, but I'm not.
I've got it figured out- I know the plan
My friends in the basement; the underground-
they know too.
You can't hold me here forever.
