In honor of Sir Terry Pratchett, I selected a quote about madness.
“Five exclamation marks, the sure sign of an insane mind.”—Sir Terry Pratchett
He didn’t call them exclamation, he called them excitement
A bitter testament to his life’s indictment
With no more than a word or a breathy breath brought
He surrendered his loving light, just as he’d been taught
With shadows his footsteps and lies his parade
He ran off with a glass menagerie, to make his own way
I thought he’d come home, return to the love
But he can’t, he won’t, no olive branch carrying dove.
I’ll watch from my window to see if he passes by
But I know that he has five exclamation marks riding by his side.
