People Are Mad – Written Saturday 11th April 2009 (Aged 34)

People Are Mad

people are mad
i tell you it is true
they are driven by demons
dressed in their past
their love barely shines –
through the permanent cast

people are mad
and somehow they believe –
it should be shared
what is mine, is yours
fairs fair,
here are the keys to the asylum door

people are mad
never seeing it as such
convinced that it must be real
if only they could touch
and being mad myself
i see it all too clearly
some accept, some deny
some create an alternate reality
people are mad

James Garratt – Saturday 11th April 2009
