This is just poetry. It won't save you, but it may locate you so that a rescue party can be sent out. — Dean Blehert

Each madman's epically mad:
His oddity is the ill he had.

[Note: For the pun-impaired (or those whose pun awareness is limited by their good taste), the two best known epics in Western literature are Homer's Odyssey and Iliad -- or "oddity" and "ill he had." As for the message: I suspect that the behavioral oddities we call madness have to do with the person being out of present time and stuck in past unpleasantness. He thinks everyone is out to destroy him? Then he's immersed in an actual incident when this was the case. (And maybe it's not so far from present time after all!)]
