Mentally Deranged

Updated on January 11, 2011

Mentally Deranged

As the cookies crumbled

so is the day of our lives

As we watched as this world

go mad and madder as the stories unfolded

From Arizona to Timbuktu

madness goes two by two.

Destructive mentally deranged human beings

goes off the deep end,

emerging from the forest of confusion

Where loneliness begins.

They life without friends always end

on a stage with a one man show

The Arizona trigger man reacted

like a wild elephant on the go.

"Come to me all who is weary

and burdened and I will give you rest

Was there signs of mental illness

checked out his eyes in the nation news

Such a rampage and hostility

Why couldn't anyone see his lack of capacity.

It was just a matter of time

before he would have wounded sweet innocent souls,

however, a fool will be a fool.

with idle hands and man made tools.

For years he traveled alone with evil thoughts,

while his blood boils, as he walked for miles

as the winds whisper within his ears,

he slowly pulled his black hooded tightly against his face

the man was a total disgrace.

What he saw

Is not necessary what we view

his view on life is quite different from me or you.

How can one grasp this brutal act.

because he needed a pat on the back.

He marched down town

armed with weapons

with the intentions of taking

the Senator life.

Looking for justice,

Or seeking redemption

firing rounds of admonition,

up-roared like a episode of the mist

How selfish can one man be.

      Since knowing you I have always found an inspiration in your ideas to write. I want to thank you for all the empathy and compassion you share within your poetry. And of course, the friendship. This was another great hub, and as I am urged by you to write I will leave what came from reading this...

      Poetical meandering's upon a mind

      so truly lost, that it could

      take another's life not ever once

      considering the cost. Not simply for

      the victims or the families that's

      a given, this lack of care

      despite all prayer will doubtful be

      forgiven. So when you

      comprehend the bitter end be careful

      your desire. Such acts portend that you

      may spend, your days emblazed within

      a burning lake of fire.
