Bluebell home for the elderly

Slippers scuff nylon carpet
Shuffling, shuffling. 
Paisley and wrinkled tights
Smell stale, old, forgetful.
TV turned loud,
Watch the pictures flicker,
Comfort of a wing backed chair
And a cup of milky tea.

They dread your visit.
Empty chit chat,
Weather, whether
Nothing names.
Vacant expressions all round,
Praying to god for an
Escape route.
Flying to heaven in a
Wing backed chair.
Crying over spilt tea.
