The Hospital

A second home for some

The hospital, a refuge

for human frailties

The vahana (vehicle) misdirected

Drives one’s spirit

Disease’s way led

Mind and body injured

Seeking comfort

Sobbing for care

Trapped, body conscious

A body’s craving

Enslaved mind

At manas’ beckoning now

Senses a ruling

Buddhi blinded

Bound over by an industry

Health trading

Hope purchases

White coated priests win

one’s allegiance

Wants’ fulfilling
