Going Mad – Written January 1996 (Aged 20)

Going Mad

going mad,
it just another –
state of understanding
it is a case –
of being eaten up
by the wisdom you know
and the madness –
that you show
i watch the television
just to dull my brain
it allows me –
to make stupid decisions
and join the insane

James Garratt – January 1996
