The Mad Hatter

My morbid, melancholic mood
Mystifying many men’s malice.
Mesmerizing masochistic minds
Making music, making magic.
Manifesting my mantra,
My mere mulish morality.
Metaphysical, my motherless muse
Manipulating my mentality.

    There is a book called "Hatters Castle" by the famous novelist A J Cronin. 600 pages long and the saddest book I ever read. Any book readers out there ? AJ Cronin's books are all outstanding !

    Not all poetry is edifying, sincere poets should realize they have a responsible role to play in their poetry ! Anybody can create nonsense, strive for excellence, Create beauty, if you have a calling use it to be a master designer of your thoughts !
