Insanity Loves Me

The only explanation,

That I can give,

Insanity loves me,

And that is just how it is.

My days are chaotic,

Never the cake,

If I get a piece,

It came from a break,

My head is always spinning,

Round and round we go,

It’s just turvy toppsy,

And that is all I know.

I tried to be straight and narrow,

Really I did try,

I guess my path just had to be

Somewhat curvy and wide,

So insanity loves me,

There is nothing I can do,

Insanity must love me,

So I will love it too.
