In what other profession,
Can a single digression:
"The red badge as a symbol of oppression,"
Not be defined as mental degression.
This madman who saw the blue curtains as sad,
Speaks of new thoughts to be had:
"None of the characters on stage are glad.
So therefore a reason is to be had!"
The depths of insanity must be complex,
For when they see something listed twice in text,
They state, "It must be something of duality and sex!"
But listed is just two dogs named Rex.
So what does this say about me,
The one who wrote this poem to be seen,
And, you, reading this academically.
