Kaleidoscope windmills with heaped carcass birds
Shout 'good morning!' through bullhorns of doubt
Sad clowns laugh at the overcast skies and you,
And prepare picnic lunches for escaped jesters 
The slumbering me pretends he's awake
And writes gibberish disguised as thought
Somewhere over the rainbow where ideas are born,
Laughing hyena's tell inappropriate and nasty limericks
To rabbi's and nuns who don't even crack a smile
As they head for the exit with disgust in a bag
Ideas floating in gelatinous waves pierce the veil
Between waking and shouldn't, but I do, yes I do
Chattering monkeys share jokes and a happy nod
With hunters who sharpen their tongues and macho
Caped crusaders stay home mainlining coffee
As The Joker tells riddles on the terrace of doom
The Penguin hurls insults and rotten fruit
While trying not to listen to his DeGeneres act 
Trying to finish this poem to justify it's point
Is an uphill battle on the mountain of "what?"
