Preposterous Abrasion of Classic Humour – Indiana Bolton

Descend into the madness

Indiana Bolton is a 14 year old poet who lives in London and finds much ‘solace and enjoyment’ in writing poetry. Thank you Indiana for your entry and support!

Preposterous abrasion of classic humour 

Humour is as thick as dickens novels context 

And complex as a circadian rhythm.

But its random acts upon our eyes is troubling 

To the mind,

as its daft and shallow which on attempt on jumping


Can break the brains sturdy legs.

As speed is not key nor is presentation but the depth is dangerous and must 

Be filled by the masses of the crippled minds and dare-devils 

Looking for simplicity. 

I warn the explorer of these misleading shallow waters, come the bank

And let the water absorb you. 

As certain few understand that to become famous the 

Simple trick to survive a humorous depth is to descend into the madness before you take a swim.

Indiana Bolton, London
