Not mine.

I do not know who wrote this, but it's one of my favorite things:

 

------------------------------------------------

The madman stood at the asylum gate,

looking all about

Trying to decide once, and for all,

if he was IN, or OUT.

------------------------------------------------

 

Always figured I was on the outside... coulda been wrong though. I was about other things.

  • alreadyGone changed the title to the madman stood at the asylum gate

A funny 1966 movie King of Hearts about a soldier who takes escapes capture by taking refuge in an asylum. After a while, one wonders who the crazy ones really are.

 

In our case, the boatload of mental and emotional dissonance in the church was pretty clear that "salvation" was more "slave-ation" to a bloody nonsensical tribal religion that became way too popular.

Is that the origin of this poem?

I had intended to ask if anyone knew the origin...

 

I'm certain you've probably seen "The Gods Must Be Crazy"...  great bit of work!
