Sitting by the river
Pea coat on
Smoking his cigarette-
He says to me that he met Mr. Nobody this morning ..
seated in a lounge chair, wearing a top hat,with his name written on it.
Said he spoke to him about Ignorance -
A thousand years ago, he would have been considered a king of wisdom-
Who once called a sage is now looked upon as a madman -
And the madmen are now crowned as sages and kings-
We must brace and embrace for the belt-buckle slap-snap'cross reality's back -
And awake from our daze-
War, horror, terror, typhoons, earthquakes, and famine
All kinds of pain and suffering one can possibly go insane-
Not just from witnessing others suffering , but the suffering one goes through by themselves- And so it come to this = sitting by the river with nothing more then a single puffy white and gray cloud floating on by all -
All I see is ENDLESS GREY -
He turns to me and says '' I am finished...I'm going home to get drunk now ''
Mad Rambles and Mumblings,Rumbles, Roars, and Thunderclaps
Only to be met by moments of whispers and soft winds -
Like standing out side one afternoon in an autumn drizzle -
Eventually the storm in his mind has passed and there is calm -sunshine, blue skies ,
birds chirping, singing, ol' chaps whistling -
But I can tell this is only the calm before the next storm -
