Twixt Swimming and Sunk

Je Vous Suis

Je Vous Suis ~ Philip Brent Harris


Is it possible for the clinically insane
to grow even more mad over time?
It seems a contradiction of the term.
It’s like saying they’re a little dead.
Though there are scenarios of degree.
Disparity twixt drinking and drunk.
Not distance twixt sinking and sunk

When I look at the world,  I wonder.
Hate for hate’s sake leads to murder.
If it’s war or revolt, each side wrong.
That is how it looks one to the other.
Defined by more than history to date.
It’s  the taint of rote learning, doctrine.
Both forms of indoctrination into bias
of where we exist. It is rough to resist.

It rankles, because it is obvious to me.
Despite looks, costume we’re the same.
Not nation, a recent concept. All of us.
So I come back to drinking and drunk.
Liquor is but one intoxicant we imbibe.
Power, guns, money, rapacious waste.
Overindulged.  So not swimming, sunk.
