Sanity is like perfection
Each word shares a common misconception
Sanity is what we call normal
Perfection is how we view the greater world
Idealism led to these terms to stay
As the ‘sane’ conformed it led the ‘insane’ astray
It led the ‘perfect’ to rise and the ‘imperfect’ to fade

Although in truth these terms prove false
Yet they pester the mind and agitate the soul

To be sane is to be abnormal
To be perfect is to be impossible
