I'm crazy

Be listening to me
One would say
'Is he crazy?'
And I would say
'Yes, I'm
And why shouldn't I?
Doesn't the craziness bring love and hate?
Doesn't the craziness makes wood decrepitate?
Without craziness no battle could be won
Without craziness no man could be born
Having no craziness water wouldn't well
And trees rot?
They are crazy, indeed
And earth wheels?
It is crazy, indeed.
Seeds not feeling crazy
Wouldn't become an harvest
Paws not clapping crazy
Wouldn't become hands
Words not flying crazy
Wouldn't become a song...
Oh, God, let me stay crazy for good.
