Insanity en Masse

These are just a few idiosyncrasies I've observed in people I know, people I have met, and from stories I have been told - reflections on Human Nature rather than about any specific being. I hope you enjoy!

And the Winner is...

And the Winner is…

You win the trophy
The coveted prize
Idiot of the year, glory
Seeps through your eyes
-
Ambition masquerading
As intellectual pursuit
Your competitors couldn’t match
Or stand in your boots
-
Celebrate your win
With adoring fans
Honor for the champion
Of your self-destructive plans

As I Watched

As I scrutinized your ascent, resembling a superhero
A champion of life, on misadventure, and me
A shadow in the moonlight and eerily dreamlike
Paused in time, even the stars’ flicker rests
Something is very odd - I try to grasp
Words tumble out the open window
Trying to catch up with the blind crusader
