Tanka T110

I probably have
Enough online stuff posted –
To be judged crazy –
By the public should I get
Accused of something crazy

Notes to this poem…

It’s true. If anybody gets accused of doing anything crazy, everything they do, no matter how tame, gets put in a different light that turns it all negative like the accusation tainted it.

Besides, the general public doesn’t handle well people who know a lot of things, are able to do a lot of things, are able to think very critically and has well formed opinion due to that critical thinking ability. It’s like if you were more intelligent than them, and there’s some hint you could be deranged for it cause somebody made some accusation of something crazy that you did, then you’d have to be crazy cause if you were normal like them, you would neither do what you’re accused of nor all these other things they don’t, and can’t, generally do.

The T-series poems are tanka composed while I was not engaged in some activity during which I frequently composed poetry. That is why these are called the Inactive Tanka collection.
