    Madness Runs Deep In The Shallows.

    Life in turmoil, impending doom
    being counseled by an alarm clock
    in my room, its metallic voice
    like robotic speak, signalled to
    me that I was up the creek.

    Addictive living is not pretty
    filled with fear,and self pity.

    Slumped down by rivers edge
    wondering what is going on
    then looming toward me is
    a talking swan.

    The talking swan counsels me
    gently,saying I am sick,and
    in need of help,get it quick.

    Knelt there listening to counseling
    swan,thinking shall I jump in
    river, and just be gone?

    Lying in bed, in drunken haze
    radiator talking to me,giving out
    heat and advice,please shut up
    don't say it twice.

    Called out for help, with lumps in throat
    help did come by way of man with white coat.

    "gently" placed in padded cell,is this
    the doorway to living hell?

    Warmest regards Michael.

    Interesting.
    Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty
