Brave and Reckless: Mad World

The Brave and Reckless Blog posted a little poem I wrote for one of their prompts. It’s called Sleep the Sleep of the Dead and it was prompted by that wonderful song Roland Orzabal of Tears for Fears wrote and Gary Jules covered, Mad World.

Diligent readers may remember Brave and Reckless posted a COVID-19 poem of mine back in the Spring when I figured the pandemic would be contained in the States within three or four months. How naïve I was.

Thanks, Christine!

    Congratulations. You set a high bar for us. I really like this poem. So fitting now that we are in month sixty-teen, or whatever it is.
