Beautiful Madmen

You are dancing in the moonlight,
to the music of
lunatics singing
God Save The Queen.
They are off-pitch,
off-kilter,
off-putting and
stand-offish
but you dance anyway,

because they are beautiful madmen.
They live in chaos,
they revel in unknowns
of the immaterial kind.
They sing and dance and
SCREAM SCREAM SCREAM
and sing and dance.
And you love them,

because they don’t make sense.
Everything in your life is logical:
you cross the road with the lights,
you get up at sensible hours,
you work for your grades;
and you never embrace the
DARKNESS DARKNESS DARKNESS
that sleeps inside of you.
Don’t deny it,

because it rests in everyone.
Our personalities are dams
holding back the chaos
of the undying laughter in
our sane insanity.
