They're coming to take me away ha-ha!
They're coming to take me away.
Back to my crayons and coloring books,
That's how I pass my days.

With pills of light green and medium red,
And orange that match my crayons so well,
Writing my poems in rainbow colors,
With always a story to tell.

I directed traffic once to often,
Said the white coated guys in the van,
"We're taking you to that intersection,
back to the house for mental correction,
the one they call "happy" land."

The people here are nuts for sure,
I'm the only one that's fine,
I play their game and act insane,
Just laughing and doing my time.

Over there in the corner,
Sits that crazy LongJohn the sailor,
Next to him picking his nose and rear,
Is that insane poet old Balladeer.


We're really not that crazy yanno,
Actually we're really just fine,
Compared to the other nuts that you've known,
Just think of Lucie and Poet deVine?

And then think of yourself?
Ya never quite know?
Ya gotta be nuts,
You're reading my poem?

If sanity were a prerequisite for joining our community, this would be a very dull place indeed. And lonely, too, with just Balladeer and I swapping old man's stories...

Oh my, Well, to keep Toe busy, let's see what he can do with "Counting Flowers on the Wall" and perhaps the inkeepers at his new home will have time for a coffee break.
