The madness train

The madness train

A Poem by Coyote Poetry
"

Time to know what real pleasure is. Before it is too late.

"
    The  Madness train


            I'm twisted up.
            Hogties to bullshit.


            I'm strangled with useless things.
            I can't recognize my face in the mirror.


            Life based on my salary.
            Paying bills.
            Buying more useless things.


            New generation of children.
            Always wanting more.


            How many toys do you need?


            Today I will go to the River.
            Sit and try to find my mind again.


            Take my child to the park.
            Toss a baseball.
            Shoot a few baskets.


            Must stop this madness.
            Put away the video games.
            Turn off the televisions.


            Go outside.


            Feel the sun on my face.


            Get un-twisted.
            Get un-hogties to the B.S.


            Get off the madness train.


             Live life for the real pleasures.
             

             Friends and family.

A reminder, and I cannot deny it's necessity, for this society and for me. This takes me by the shoulders and shakes me. So thank you for bringing notice to our own complacency. Something must be done. I think I should take some time to rediscover my own mind as well.

Very true poem that says a lot. Technology numbs our minds and television misleads us. Materialism is the new thing and I am terrified that this new generation will be our future. A breathe of fresh air a day keeps insanity away. Great poem, thanks for sharing as always Coyote.

It is true that we sometimes miss what's important in our lives and until we see it gone, do we realize we lost something very vital to us
I like this poem's message lots :)

Thank you for getting across such an important message. I agree with you, and advocate the same message, yet do not take my own advice. Thank you for showing me this. I really need to stay true to my promise to myself to be productive, and cease my endless procrastination. It's corruptive and shameful. People do need to spend more time outside and enjoying the finer things in life, rather than wasting away over things that do not matter.

Great message and so true.
"How many toys do you need?" Isn't that the truth. If we get out and feel the sun and breath in the open spaces we often find we need very little more. If we do this we those we love it only makes it better.

An honest written piece. Today we are so bewildered with technology that I thin most of us have forgotten what it was like when we didnt have all this technology. to be outside, to be in nature, to even just go to a playground and go one the swings - enjoying life that way. Its as you said, maddness. Nice write.
