Dance With The Madman

by Chris Sorrenti

   "Within any important issue,
   there are always aspects no one wishes to discuss."
     - George Orwell

      Dance with the madman
Come dance with me
We’re not that different
Yes you’ll see
As we waltz to the beauty of our idiosyncrasies
      The head psychiatrist’s plan

      Dance with the madman
Come dance with me
We’re all the same
Yes you and me
The head psychiatrist leaving our straight jackets untied
      Given us the hospital keys

      Dance with the madman
Come dance with me
We’re not that far gone
Yes you’ll see
As we waltz in the spotlight of certainty
      The head psychiatrist is crazier than we

Now this is too cool. Madmen treat those that desire sanity, because they know what it is to be deranged, in fact as well as education.

Excellent allegory.
