Unsound Minds – Written Tuesday 26th June 2001 (Aged 26)

Unsound Minds

the psychopaths,
the vampire bats,
the panic attacks,
the excuses and self indulgence
the insane,
those climbing out of their mind
the hangers on,
those who said they would stay
but in fact, had already gone
the mad,
the tears and fears
and the sadness failure brings
counting the years
the made up,
with their terrible make up
those that laughed so hollow
looking for comedy
but only finding self indulgence
and so much tragedy
those who should have gone
or been on a couch,
but not mine,
but i was never qualified
to deal with those of an unsound mind

James Garratt – Tuesday 26th June 2001
