I write what I feel…



Post No. 812




Is insanity contagious

When behaviour is outrageous

Humanity has exited

And adrenalin is now

The drug of choice

Freely available

To all who are unable

To contain their hu- (a-)nger

Addicts all who need

Gratification in an instant

Satisfaction in the moment

Boasting bloodlust

Cruelty and destruction

Of animal existence

And when that is not sufficient

Turning on their own

Driven higher and higher

Until they im- or ex-plode

While dancing on the edge of death


Give me instead

The wild countryside

Sweet-smelling grasses

Unsullied waters

Peace and tranquillity

Kindness and harmony

The way to truly survive

This rat-race called life

The Day the Mask Slipped

The Day the Mask Slipped


The day the mask slipped

You showed your other face again,

Dishing out the pain.

Before – in anger and in rage,

Now – you’ve turned the page.

The phony face of reason you displayed,

But your hand you overplayed

The day the mask slipped.
