Insanity Explained In Simple Language

I feel a certain..now what is the word I need here, hmm, perhaps affinity is the correct one, if not it will have to do as I have other tasks to get on with, going to bed being one. Where was I? Ah yes, affinity to insanity, the title of this piece of artistic relevance in today’s world of irrelevancy.


Despite never being diagnosed insane by any doctor on the island where I have had the greatest fortune a man can have, being born there; that is England herself, insanity has been alluded to once or twice in replies to my articles on this and that over the years of my activity on social media. However, I cannot say I have any first-hand experience that could have been required to represent myself as an expert, so I shall refrain from such reference.


Instead, I will try to explain insanity in simple language. Unlike the language used by experts which would normally be full of expert jargon and the like. Not that I have any experience of experts in this subject, you understand. I’m imagining an expert being beside me as I write, wishing they were in charge of the keypad. And they are not!


Insanity Explained In Simple Language

Any anomaly to the harmony should instantly be disallowed.
No deviance or divergence should be contained in that which is vowed.
The addition to the penal sentence is not always guaranteed,
Even though the anomaly may be thoroughly misconceived.


Any interruption to the pattern will be rejected without recourse to law.
No mention is permitted of substance that you alone only saw.
Evidence must accompany all peculiarities that occurred,
With no reference being made to utterances that were completely absurd.


The judgment of the chief medical officer will stand unopposed.
No appeal can be made until all the bodies are fully decomposed.
Insanity itself is no mitigation to the murder of that which is true
And all will appear so much better after you are locked away from our view!


I suggest sanity is a simple state of mind suspended in an insane space.
The space itself is expertly controlled by people who are in fact; a disgrace.
A disgrace to whom you say, and I ask you do you mean whom or who?
Whilst several of our company leave for home as they have no wish to stay in this queue.

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp’s introduction to the world of espionage and mystery happened at an early age when his father was employed by the War Office in Whitehall, London, at the end of WWII. However, it wasn’t until after his father died that he showed any interest in anything other than himself! On leaving academia he took on many roles in his working life: a London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver, but never did he plan to become a writer. Nevertheless, after a road traffic accident left him suffering from PTSD and effectively—out of paid work for four years, he wrote and self-published his first novel —The Desolate Garden. Within three months of publication, that book was under a paid option to become a $30 million film. The option lasted for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company. All seven of his novels are now published by Creativia with the seventh—The Widow’s Son, completing a three book series alongside: What Happened In Vienna, Jack? and Once I Was A Soldier. Under the Creativia publishing banner, The Desolate Garden went on to become a bestselling novel in World and Russian Literature in 2017. The following year, in May 2018, his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? was a number one bestseller on four separate Amazon sites: America, UK, Canada, and Australia.  Although it's true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows most about; murders laced by the mystery involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he writes, namely: Why? A Complicated Love, and the intriguing story titled The Story That Had No Beginning. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication and described as—the new Graham Green—by a highly placed employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of book signing events. He has also appeared on 'live' television in the UK publicising that first novel of his. He continues to write novels, poetry and the occasional quote; this one is taken from the beginning of Once I Was A Soldier There is no morality to be found in evil. But to recognise that which is truly evil one must forget the rules of morality.
