The office is open and the day will be full
My first client's here
Sunny cried tears of grief for her
Rose wants to take pills (suicidal)
Louise, once so competent
Cannot work (depressed)
David's barely hanging in
Goes to hospital (depressed)
Robert cannot teach (also depressed)
What can he do?
What can any of them do?
I have no answers
The wounded keep walking
A tough ordeal, I reach for a tissue
But all I find
An Empty Tissue Box
