The Master and his Squire

Illusion and reality;
The master and his squire.
Lunacy and sanity:
Two faces on a coin
Balanced
On a point of view.

The windmills
At which we tilt
While we learn from one another,
Have a lesson, if we’d listen:
The only one who’s truly sane
Is nobody.

Inspired by Don Quixote
Don Quixote by Paynton

    Blast. I had a draft that did explain this, at some length. But, I never got a round tuit. And then Microsoft ditched Live Spaces and sent me to WordPress — sans my drafts…

    Might this help until I can get around to the rewrite?

    Yikes! from 2007. What’s truly incredible is how just about everyone, despite the evidence, is convinced we ARE sane.
