When you're locked inside a little box

And cannot find the keys or locks

The world is full of little shocks

And getting hit by hard knocks.


Is the little box inside your brain?

Is it causing too much pain?

Putting on too much strain

Will it make you go insane?


Sane and insane walk down the same street

Often the two of them will meet

They will stand and talk and greet

Not knowing who's the cheat.


So if someone seems to be locked

Has their entire World been rocked

Maybe nobody really talked

Inside, they are totally shocked.

Hi Michael, an unusual poem that works very well. It's hard to think of different ideas, but you have done well with this one. Cheers mate.
