Daily Prompt: Maddening

Maddening

Much Madness is divinest Sense – (620)

By Emily Dickinson
Much Madness is divinest Sense
To a discerning Eye
Much Sense – the starkest Madness
’Tis the Majority
In this, as all, prevail
Assent – and you are sane
Demur – you’re straightway dangerous
And handled with a Chain
