Madness~by Paul F. Lenzi


 

 

Madness

“Ghost of Madness” by Miki de Goodaboom

the inmates are outmates

escaped the asylum

with campaigns of keys

smuggled in by a

mindless electorate

straightjackets pinstriped

and pleated respectably

demagogues rattling bones

of dead dogmas that

echo with craven canards

a most artless display

of insanity normalized

raised to a level of influence

bound to derange

a democracy founded on

rational principles
