insanity a precocious loop
a swashbuckling mind traveler
favouring only the some
neglecting the others
their minds boot sucking
in the boring morass
of the legally sane
why favour some with the ability
to hear the voice of god
to be with surety
an erstwhile hero
are the mad tormented
sad and lonely souls
existing in their false reality
or is insanity the gift
allowing access to a world
mind designed
a place of resurrection
from the inanity of a world
lost in the imaginings of the normal

impartial observance

impartial observance of every day actions
is rarely achieved, there are constant infractions
we know what we know, we believe what is true
so often another has a whole different view
their truth is not ours, they do not understand
the acceptable future for which we have planned
our truth is their lie, our goodness unseen
they suspect us of plotting, a dark monstrous scheme
so, history sways from the left to the right
a viewpoint induced by the presence of might
who so holds the power is the owner of truth
effecting the press and impacting the youth
prejudice, politics, talk of the day
awash with the truth or the lies of the way
illegal immigrants, marriage for gays
should iraq be invaded, does war deserve praise
depends so entirely on our point of view
some agree, some would challenge, some do not have a clue
