“Please don’t take me there. Please, please don’t take me there. I will listen to whatever you say. I will do what you say, I will be good. I will be good. Tell them not to!” (cries, weak. tears, begging. a man so weak)

[men from the hospital. a family that cares. a wife, away. a life that can no more be claimed]
