An Allen Ginsberg quoted by Maxine Kumin on her intro to the collected poems of Anne Sexton

I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked
... on the granite steps of the madhouse with shaven heads and harlequin speech of suicide,
demanding instantaneous lobotomy,
and who were given instead the concrete void of insulin metrasol
electricity, hydrotherapy, psychotherapy, occupational therapy
pingpong & amnesia ...
