Mad Softly

Back home they used to say

“People from England Mad”

Mad like wearing sweaters in the heat

And let’s face it, the shoes

The shoes they wore on their feet

Were just weird?


Back home they said

“Mary Jane was mad”

Mad like having another one again

One after the other

Like a runaway train

was just too much?


Back home they said

“You must be mad”

Mad to leave all you have behind

what can you possibly hope

to find

over there?


I am not sure what they say back home


Now that I’m here indefinitely

But I remember Mommy used to say

If you must mad

Mad softly.
