I Am Not a MadMan

Image

I have been called

to my own self

defense,

I am no madman,

I am nothing but

a bounty,

of love and resource

for all,

for all who want and

              accept it.

I am not a madman.

I am a presence

that makes no

                 presence at all.

I am not a madman

but I am not a poet

either.

I am not a

             council, or a

member of the wise,

I am not a madman,

I do not need to

Jump to defense.

What I need to

do is simply my

chore, to be completed

on yet another day.
