Poems -> Death :  Care in the Community
Tags: depression   death   society   system   suicide   care  
 
It’s not down to psychiatric staff,
who won’t help the suicidal.
It’s not down to the system,
forcing her to work - and not be “idle”.
You can’t start blaming the GPs,
who won’t provide home visits.
If she is ill, it’s her own fault –
for if not hers, whose is it?

It was not down to her family,
or so-called “friends”, who claimed to care.
Of course she could have talked to them
about her deep despair.
They wouldn’t have called it “attention-seeking”.
They wouldn’t have ignored her.
Her blood is not upon their hands.
To suggest as much, is out of order.
