The Brute

In Mad World, there’s a poem titled “The Brute” which is about …no i won’t give it away. Well, its about wild and uncontrollable behaviour common to certain kinds of people. There are quite a number of reasons why I wrote that poem, but one reason is that the word brute (just like the word savage) has in the past been used dishonestly, or to unfairly dehumanize and denigrate certain types of people. So I decided to take that idea and flip it around, to tilt the whole concept on its head altogether, and redefine brute to signify what I considered a brute to have meant.
