Masquerading As A Fool - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

'You are mad! '
I am insane.
And I reserve the right
To change my mind...
Since I recognized that
Long before your compliment.
I am completely at peace with it!
No need to continue,
With your 'show and tell' endeavors.
Unless it provides you with a sense of comfort?
And I will not tell anyone...
Your masquerading as a fool,
Is purely for survival purposes!
Go ahead!
Who else is 'nuts'?
