Bats in the Belfry - Salvador Dali

Salvador Dali who I share a birthday with. Picture courtesy of

Not quite there is he
slightly bonkers but free
Living in a world of make-believe
more than just bats in the belfry

Whilst people walk straight in line
he’ll walk out of time
Not in tune with others of his kind
yet he seems to do just fine

Whilst people think him nuts
others think he has guts
Taking risks to be better than us
doing what he must

A picnic short of a toolbox he may be
he has to to think out of the box you see
Just a few bats in the belfry
along for the ride to make his alive and free
