Poem: Dem Say I Mad


Dem Say I Mad

Dem say I mad

Dem say I mad

And some a dem go so far as to say

I ain’ mad I just bad

 

Dem say I bad

Dem say I baaad

Dem say is badness mek I walk up and down

Through de town wid a frown

 

Dem say is dope

Mek I can’t cope

Me say the drugs dat de doctor order

Create an even worse disorder in me brain

 

I’m not insane

I’m not insane

But because I’m ashamed to be like you

You call me crazy woman

 

I am woman

Rasta woman

I want to stand

An let de rain wash away

De dut and de pain

De stress and de strain

An de whole of Babylon
