Another glorious day on

The planet of the apes!


Confined to a slowly decaying body,

Surrounded by pathetic examples of

The 'finest' of earth's inhabitants,

Human beings without a clue

Of the spectrum of totality,

My lonely soul agonizes;


How much longer, I wonder,

Must I tolerate this sentence,

This isolation from my home

And from my own people?


It will be interesting to see

Whether or not I might die

Before being driven mad.


"Just another mad poet"

They would say.

    People do get on our nerves some days, or some times. Seems like planet of the apes at times, though I don't go along with evolution.
    Then again we may say 'You greedy pig', and reply 'Why you insulting pigs?'

    Not so glorious here - thick snow and I have a bit of a drive later this morning - great write.

    I miss your insightful writing. I hope you post again soon.
