Maybe Crazy Is Catchin'


You know, in my day
I’ve met some mighty strange folks
People you just might call crazy
But sometimes I get to thinkin’
They just might be the only sane people among us
Maybe crazy is catchin’.

I’ve spit farther than most of the guys
And seen some mighty strange “planes” in the air
I got layers....different flavors
There’s the girl the whole world gets to see
And then there’s me, hiding inside
Maybe crazy is catchin’.

I’ve learned that forever can be an hour, a day
I’ve stood in the rain without gettin’ wet
I’ve been punished for every imaginable crime
I’ve died before...I’ll die again
Sometimes I think this whole world’s crazy
Maybe crazy is catchin’.

Maybe crazy is catchin’
Maybe the ones you view as ludicrous
Are the only ones who really know the truth
Maybe we will rescue you all
From yourselves, the “normal” folks.
Maybe, just maybe, crazy is catchin’.

Poem of the Day

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
