Madness, a poem written by Maria Dulce Leitão Reis at



written by: Maria Dulce Leitão Reis


Wide sad eyes,
with seven cloths of bitterness,
black silences cry.

Bare, gaping mouths,
scream for truth
that comes painted with lies.

The madness
starts to laugh in the darkness.
Hunger is also black,
no more colouring chalk.

They no longer sell,
pay one take two…

Only the skeleton remains
thrown into a common grave!
