THE MAD MAN

What is real
And what is not
If we don’t see what we do not
Does it mean it doesn’t exist?

Then why do we call the mad man mad?

What is a mad man
But one who sees that which we can’t
And is honest about it

A funny fly
A fast oncoming car
Someone following
With harmful intent

Why do we call the mad man mad
And not genius

Is genius not the knack
To see what the world cannot

Then what is a mad man
But the ultimate thinker
Creator and seer

Like scientists see maggots
Where there’s fresh
Blood and bones

Or psychics
Suspended in a space
With no time or place;

Who truthfully tell
Of things yet to pass

Are they not of superior intellect

In a world that sees black
Who sees red
Is he mad
Or the ultimate seer

Then why do we call the mad man mad
When, like the genius
He sees that which we cannot

Why do we call the mad man mad?
