A Polite Tour of Insanity (recited to the sound of panting)
Insanity's so fascinating
As long as it stays far away
And doesn't come close enough
To ruin your life, which it has attempted
On a few occasions, so that now
Instead of gravitating toward it
I walk steadily in any other direction
That insanity is not itself moving
I feel that we have had a polite disagreement
And I would like it to stay polite.
The difficulty of this will not become apparent
Until you too have felt insanity
Breathing down your neck
Watching your every move
Because it can never approve
Of anything you do
The word 'Insanity' is not very descriptive
Of this fact, but it will have to do
Until they come up with a better term.
Whoops; time to start running again..
