He was a licensed psychiatric nurse –
jolly good fellow, some few might deny –
a little bit San Francisco perverse.
One day a patient said to him that she
felt that a dreadful mistake had been made.

but this is the world you’ll have to endure.
Though I know, to you, your displacement’s real,
It’s not like we can issue a transfer.
If such a thing were possible to do,
I’d have signed up for that long before you.”
