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 William Butler Yeats

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
