Droplets of Sanity 

From “A Fine Line “

Feigned death has curious company

All with ice cream cones

And green tea sorbet on them

————

Feigned life is quite different

Everyone’s there

From waking up

To falling asleep

You see them

All the dumb

Naive, iignorant perhaps

They go about their routine

Their chores

Responsibilities

Then you realise

Suddenly sadly

That you’re one of them

Part of the tribe of stupid

And you panic

Take a pill

Rest

And build up your strength

To become dumb again
