The madcap laughs
Hi how are you
Have you just smoked some weed
Are you searching for the wonder drug
Are you going to be a poet
Playing mystical rhymes
On the harp
In the statue of the mind
Are you scholar of war
A flag seeking peace
Unfurled and tied to a sitting post
Enfeebled tortoises chase the wind
Catch their breath instead
An the hare laps them again
Ha Ha Ha
I'm insane
So can you
Feel my pain
Or has my poem
Been in vain
