Madness/More Madness

Madness/More Madness

A Poem by Dianah
"

Two poems written in the silly season where things get a little bit crazy.

"
Madness

Some brush it under the carpet
or try to lock it away
but it breeds within our human genes
madness is here to stay.

Madness smolders slowly
in packs of  burnt out cigarettes
some drink to drown madness
but then fill up with regrets

Some people will pay out millions
to search for sense inside their heads
I saw madness sleep with sanity
in Tracey's unmade bed.

You cannot lock it out
when you know it's waiting there
behind every cracked reflecton
the eyes of madness stare.

More Madness

It's madness to waste money
but we do it every day
while some fight to survive
some just waste away.

Some think it is pure madness
to buy organic meat
when factory farms are full
of cheaper hen pecked treats.

Wars are fueled on madness
and the lies of politicians.
Madness lurks in factories
fired up with ammunition.

Madness walks in corridors of power
paying lawyers by the hour.
In so many cases the victims pay
madness watched criminals walk away.

It's hard to stay sane in a world full of insanity
I'm off to scatter seeds of madness for humanity.

Ohh excellent my friend what a lovely job you ve done here..
it was just like my day .i was so restless this day..for you know me i just cant accept things that are not right
but everything seems to must go wrong so they be accepted.and i look like the weird one,this is a sign of our time
they just wont take you if you are normal,but if you twist the fact and go round the bend ,steal ,or may play with money
in unlawful way..if you dont stand with the strong even if he is so wrong ..or if you stand with the weak they hit you hard
till break your back..and madness of killing ,just look into the news ,they get all sorts of pretext just to kill in the name of religion
or democracy or civilizacion..millionares i see build some huge mansions around my place..while so many many are dying of hunger
its madness everywhere and i am restless all the time..for i just cant see these things ,yet i can do nothing
i really enjoyed what you wrote..that was exactly my feelings at the moment ..
lovely write..

"I saw madness sleep with sanity
in Tracey's unmade bed" I love this line,
Two great poems, they are both good, personally, I prefer the first,
But hay, what do I know?
