A Mad House

A Mad House, Margaret Mair, original art

It’s a mad house
That beckons you
Ever further in
Through this sturdy door
And that strange portal
Seducing you with
Promises of enlightenment
Till you enter
An unforeseen
And terrifying darkness
Lurking deep inside.
There
A mad world sings
A seductive song
Inviting everyone in
To a swirling universe
Where up is down
And right is wrong
And knowledge is ignorance
And truth is lies
Until no-one knows
Which way to heaven
And which way hell
And everyone tries
To swim toward
A different light.
