Poem: Shackles

The shackles of sanity
Wrap around his mind
With the scent of haldol
And risperdol coursing
Through neurons quieting
The fires that burn within
Melting his thorny crown
Reducing the messiah
To what they call typical
Within normal limits
Where he sits staring
Outside the window 
In his infinite sadness
Missing the conversations
He used to hold with friends
In the madness
