Cover for Drabblecast episode 136, The Great Old Pumpkin, by Bo KaierYou must know, Doctor, that I did not choose to seek psychiatric help. I have no faith that I shall exit this room a healed man; I know now that I have been destined for the asylum since childhood. No mere conversation with you can steer me clear of that fate.

Madness abounds
