In Other Words, madness…


Write a story or poem of 5 Lines or Less using the word madness

You didn’t have to be mad to live there, but it sure helped.

There was chaos from morning till night.

To make the madness worse, the children kept turning up.

By now with a sixth on the way and his wife a real psycho the notion of survival was all that mattered.

Finally, he figured it all out and made an appointment to get the chop for no other reason than to preserve himself from the madness engulfing him.

    Hmm, the chop…very interesting. Somehow this rather bleak story made me smile. Maybe there is madness in me? Thanks for linking your story.
