(Song Of A Madman) My Time Mad.
It was happiness all over,
I saw stars look like balls,
Balls looked like oranges,
But could not see how oranges looked like!
I saw women look like paw paws,
Paw paws looked like breasts,
Breasts looked like cocoa,
But could not see how cocoa looked like.
I used to eat what I saw, but now I starve,
I talked naked truth, but now I’m a liar,
I flew distances and miles, but now I’m caged,
I swarm in air, but now I shudder walk.
I had a strong ambition to build a castle,
In which I laid the foundation in a day,
Only to find myself assigned other assignments.
Here I come to an end, for my time mad,
Happy I was at a time, but now I see,
Mad I was, but my life still continued,
That’s all I can remember for my time mad.
