The World Has Gone Mad

Woke up this morning to the barking of the cows
The scarlet moon rising from the south in the morn
The grass a glorious blue against a green sky
The cat striped black and red bleats under my bed

The wife asks from the bathroom for her shaving blade
“Your late for school! ” scream the kids “We’re off to work! ”
I step outside and trudge along among the clouds
I adjust the shoe on my head and hitch up my pantyhose

[Hata Bildir]
