The House of Make Believe


In The House of Make Believe
We accept all wich are free
Be it worm or agressive bee
as long as your mind
has learn to see
in The House
of Make Believe

Make that noise
Provoke that shriek
Scratch that itch
Peel that scab
Let it bleed

You are the best
As we see
As long as your ID
is you
With us you'll sleep

During some day
During some moment
The stars will shine
and reflect your portrait
in the sea

A person is only worth
what their mind thinks
If those thoughts
are not masked by a lie
Then my friend
You are blessed
with Individuality

Your application
Impressive BEYOND belief
So here's your cot
among the misfit
among the minds
among the world changing
personalities
within this house
of Make Believe

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
