Defective Kept Delusions


Defective kept delusions...
Left sombered.
But not yet sobered.
From those,
Defect kept delusions.
Left to be sombered...
But needing sobering,
Long to be done.

Myths hyped!
Paralyzing blind minds.
Myths hyped.
Shutting tight disguised eyes.
Myths hyped!
By fools let loose from gilded cages,
Parading fanatic erratic decisions made.

Defective kept delusions,
Have their backs against a wall.
Affected with delusions
Hasn't stopped their craze at all.

Myths hyped!
Paralyzing blind minds.
Myths hyped.
Shutting tight disguised eyes.
Myths hyped!
And those,
Defective kept delusions,
Have their backs against a wall.
Affected with delusions,
Hasn't stopped their craze at all.

Madness is the pattern,
And...
Myths hyped.
With those defective kept delusions.

Madness is the pattern,
And...
Myths hyped.
With those defective kept delusions.
Myths hyped.
With those defective kept delusions.

Madness is the pattern,
And...
Myths hyped.

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
