the continuous beeps and noises
provides little comfort
in the stark white room
devoid of any personality

it is a not a place of relaxation
despite the number of times they tell you

this place of healing
often times has the opposite mental effect
uncertainty and hopelessness - common emotions
strict regimens of prescriptioned health
no choice in the matter
not really knowing what is going on
trust is the biggest driving factor

people become numbers
and numbers become money
in the end, despite it all
it really is a business
24/7 it admits, treats, and discharges
a cyclic repetitive process
that is the american hospital system.
