A Day in the Pen.
By Tyler Bryan

Jakob stared out the window
Demonic beings stared back through at him
As he stared he wondered “Where did my life go
All the demons did was laugh and wave around his limb.

He felt his arm but it was still there.
Yet still, in snake tongue, they chanted and sang.
It seemed that the only thing he didn’t have was his curly black hair.
And as the demons opened the window the phone rang.

“Mister Grimm, Your prescriptions are in.
“What are you talking about Sir?
“Take them or you’ll die in this loony bin.
“If this is a prank you are a real amateur.

As the doctor stared on at the man in the cell with the padded wall,

It seemed as if nothing was the only thing to do at all.
