Mad Logic

I wonder why they seem to lock
People with problems together
It seems that they want to mock
And not see them get better

How can it be just
To have those in need
Pushed by others till they burst
No past example do they heed

Depressed minds near suicide
Put amongst those that will abuse
Not caring who they deride
And get off on those they use

It seems that those who need our care
Are placed in a tormentuous room
Surrounded by abuse and a cold stare
Needing love but only getting gloom

Something must change
If their sanity is to be saved
Not thrown in with the deranged
Better with the gentle well behaved
