The mind is a strange thing. One moment you are fine, the next you are attempting to make sense of chaos. Mental well-being is something we all take for granted, but who decides what is rational and what is insane? Written at a time when I felt as though I was losing it … when in truth it was the situation around me, crazy times, crazy people and crazy ideas. The title Lull Before a Storm refers to the complacency we should all be aware of.


Deep beneath the viewed obsession
Tension functions like a thorn
Moving back in apprehension
Just a lull before a storm

Watching brollies in the desert
Hearing notes descend like rain
Vultures hover in the sunshine
Over this oasis plain
Stranded whales in shallow waters
The pilot let them all astray
To place their faith in such is madness
Bitter words no duty pay

Priests correct by absolution
Captive souls seduced, conform
Fashion guilt in mind ablutions
Sets a lull before the storm

Overtax the competition
Let the bastards squirm and bleed
The rules by which a politician
Aids his fellow human creed
Concentrate the population
Pigeon-hole them every one
Starve their lungs of oxidation
Stop the movement from the norm

Hold precipitation
Borne on insane wind

Strap a sundial to your fingers
And a voice to help it warn
Watch it dictate all your actions
“Sands of time! We have a storm!”
