I'm diving into the deepest corner

Of the pit, which pit?

I hear you ask?

Why, the pit of insanity of course


The one where I lay 

With the three headed camouflaged Flamingo

Dying slowly one head at a time

Falling asleep for her last nap


I'm also next to the green Sheep

That’s wearing lady stilettos

As I hear it moan about its baggy jumper

Of unravelling wool, that goes on for miles 


Last but not least


The neckless Giraffe


 “Where the Wild Things Are”

In Latin, crying red hearts into his tissue


Moving on swiftly 

My eyeballs now raw

From this unbelievable imagery


Now into an even worse scenario 


The scenario 

That I may actually wake from this insanity…


After all


I bloody love being

Completely and utterly bonkers mad.

        You joined the Club then?!
        And - do insane people know they are insane?
        I'm getting into a psychology book. Don't ask me to explain it all - things like 'Is a feeling a feeling unless we can feel the feeling?'
        And 'Does a thought know it's a thought, unless it's self-conscious of being a thought? Something like that anyway. Doh!

              For the neckless giraffe:
              "clamantis rubra corda in eius textus"
              As they say in Latin.
              You should have crossed a sheep with a kangaroo,and got a wooly jumper 🤔

              • Teddy.15

                in the words of Oliver Twist
                more, Please
