Missikin’s Recovery (but will it last?)

Yamima thinks that Sister Missikin is sleeping too much in her final days. As she leaves (after cleaning the cell) she puts the latest Scabby Felix album on the CD player. Later Missikin’s carers – Sister Ethel and Sister Frida – find her smiling and tapping, appetite restored and her mood a trifle over-elevated.  Is this because of Ahmed’s herbal remedy, or (as Frida thinks) the clashing discords of Iron Grunge? Sister Ethel receives a text message from Madam Cosima next door at the personal services agency. Would the sisters please turn down the music as it is disturbing her girls at work.
