IF I LOST MY MIND...
The madman laughed at me
Convinced in his mind that I was the crazy lad.
That got me thinking:
Does a madman know he is mad?
If I lost my mind, would I know it?
Or would I be too impaired to be aware?
If my hair grows rebelliously like an eagle's feather
And my nails become like a bear's claws
Would I know that that's the course of a madman?
Or would I be convinced that it's the latest fad
If a stream of saliva flows down my beard
And I engage lifeless poles in a discussion
Would I consider it weird?
Or would I think it's the social norm?
And as these crazy thoughts race through my mind,
One thing I am definitely certain of:
Of all the things I am thankful for,
Foremost is that I haven't lost my mind.
Or have I?
