Daily Prompt: Murmuration

The old man was quiet, unusually so

They liked him to mumble so they would know

He was still alive.


The nurses kept watch if his breathing decreased

So his meds were not botched and he’d end up deceased.

But he survived.


All their watching and treatments tortured the man

Had murmurations of how he will do what he can

To not be revived.


He was tired of this life, being unaware

His family conspired to put him there.

How they connived.


His insurance provided them his money

They fed on it like a bee on honey

So they kept him alive.


One day the old guy had had enough

He took hidden meds and other stuff

Then happily, took his last nosedive.
