Short "Poem".

Since we're discussing madness and poetry, I figure I'll post a (very short!) poem - if you want to call it that - that I thought up after class...

Beneath the eyes
Of many madman
Lies a smiling child
Born decades too early

and a Nietzsche quote:

"Madness is rare in individuals, but in groups, parties, nations, and ages it is the rule."
--Friedrich Nietzsche

And I must make an appeal that someone should get Alex on here to post his poem about "charging for human kindness" - or if somebody knows it, post it!

Love the poem, and the Nietzsche quote.
