Lunatics And Maniacs

Professor, therapist, author and poet.






Lunatics and maniacs drive on the city street.
They tailgate, speed, swerve and pass as if death they can cheat.

Lunatics and maniacs work in the labor force.
They scramble up the ladder, ill tempered, rude and coarse.

Lunatics and maniacs shop at the local mall.
They shoplift or cut in line, clamor, dispute and brawl.

Lunatics and maniacs play in sports to compete.
They employ chicanery opponents to defeat.

Lunatics and maniacs marry with family.
They mistreat both spouse and kids and create tragedy.

Lunatics and maniacs commingle socially.
They are boorish, vile and crass and cause disharmony.

Lunatics and maniacs live in the neighborhood.
They wreak havoc everywhere disrupting all things good.
