Yet There Is Method In It

“Though this is madness,
yet there’s method in it”
—Shakespeare—

MADNESS IS RITUAL NONSENSE

Varying in accord with inborn TEMPERAMENT

Enacted in a trance STATE

Therefore unintentional and involuntary

Entranced rituals Distract COMPANIONS

From detecting THE SHAMEFUL FAILURE

to live up to expectations

And finding a person UNWORTHY OF CARE

Distracting RITUALS serve DEFENSIVE ROLE ENACTING

Which is used only in threatening situations

To control the DEFINITION OF interpersonal RELATIONS

THEREFORE MADNESS IS TWICE GAINFUL

IN AVOIDING abandonment AND

IN ACHIEVING escape from RESPONSIBILITY

SO SHAKESPEARE GOT IT RIGHT—

THERE’S METHOD IN MADNESS
