No one at Mt. Airy Psychiatric Hospital
Was sure what was precisely wrong with Joe Hebron?
They knew he had Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder from the War In Iraq.
However, Dr. Irwin Schwartz and his nurse,
Suspected that Joe had a more serious psychiatric disorder
Because he wouldn't stop SCREAMING.
Everyone in the entire Psychiatric Hospital.
"You're the same Motherfuckers who raped my Ancestors,"
"And brought them here in chains!" Joe screamed.
"You're the same Motherfuckers who Assassinated Sitting Bull,"
"Killed off all the Bison,"
"And stole the Land from the Injuns!"
Joe couldn't stop his Obscene Sermons!
Dr, Schwartz and Melissa were worried about their patient,
"Maybe, his dose of Zyprexa isn't high enough?" Melissa wondered.
"No." Dr. Schwartz said.
"He's on enough of that stuff."
"If we give him any more meds,"
"We'll kill him."
"Then, we'll get sued for Malpractice."
"I have another Scheme."
Dr. Schwartz grabbed a notepad and a pen,
Threw it in Joe's room
While he was in the middle of his Obscene Sermons.
He suddenly stopped ranting
And began SKETCHING on the pad and paper.
Then, he began WRITING a poem.
Joe Hebron was gentle and quiet like a child
Without any additional drugs.
"Would you like to read my poem, Ms. Romero?"
"I wrote it especially for you."
Well, Melissa was taken aback!
She wished her boyfriend would be as sweet as this Mental Patient.
"Why, sure, Joe," she said.
"I'll read your poem."
It went like This,
(Roses are Red)
(Violets are Blue)
(Trump's cuts of the Mental Health System)
(Will fuck me up)
(As well as you)
(Kale is Green)
(Coal is Black)
(The Ku Klux Klan is running this Country)
(White Supremacy is Back!)
Melissa was very impressed with Joe's poem.
"That's a very sweet poem, Mr. Hebron."
"No one has ever shared such lovely sentiments with me."
"Now, I think you're ready for discharge tomorrow"
"As long as you continue your Writing."
"I think you were just having a PTSD relapse"
"Related to your Tour of Duty"
