Descent into Madness

In the cool mist of the morning

there came such a day

a cattywampus creature

came to stay

An encephalopathy ailed him

captured his brain

biting at everything in sight

attracted to the colors in the rain

Calmer now

reaching the end of the rainbow

big eyes staring

not knowing where to go

Night falls

calmness in the dark

the creature rests

until there is a light spark

Diving deep

wanting the madness to end

death finally envelops him

a welcome friend

In another place

no longer overwhelmed

the creature is at peace

in the Heavenly realm
