Ground me friend- to some sanely thought
ground me lest I should forget, or have forgot
 
the meaning of normality! Cut me wingless
for this kite is at the wind’s mercy, stringless
 
The wings of madness are Icarus’s downfall
Flog me,or if need be, tie me to the stonewall
 
Before it is too late; rendered permanent, that is
Before I mistake my fervor, my frenzy for bliss
