Who among you have seen the beauty
Hidden at the backside of life?
Maybe we should ask a mad fellow
The wonderful pictures he beholds
The joy that riseth within

We say they lost their marbles
But they foretell the unseen
We say they are out of their mind
Because they walk naked
But it has been in eden before disobedience

Maybe we are all mad
Thinking in our mind we are normal
Perhaps the normal being we call "mad"
Simply because we are not normal
Or the mad are truly mad and abnormal.
