“But I don’t want to go among mad people,” Alice remarked.
“Oh, you can’t help that,” said the Cat. “we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.”
“How do you know I’m mad?” said Alice.
“You must be,” said the Cat, “or you wouldn’t have come here.”
~Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
is what is real really real
and what is thought just a thought?
how can imagination
be an escape from reality
if reality is something
we perceive in our own minds?
if imagination is a part of the mind
then is it not as real as the mind?
if what we sense is what is real
then what is real cannot be real
since it is different for you
than it is for me
or perhaps a reality exists
and none of us can sense it
oh we’re all mad here
but some are madder than others
lest I become sane
as the Berkshire boar turned human
