[2021] Insanity

is doing the same thing  
over and over and  
expecting different results
 

You can thank Albert Einstein  
for popularizing said phrase  
 
before mental illness itself  
was thrust into the spotlight  
of American consciouness  
 
premiering as topic of conversation  
after Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho  
inspired water conservation  
as it prompted 1960 moviegoers  
when alone in their homes  
to avoid shower curtained bathtubs  
 
Gus Van Sant's 1998 remake  
of the black and white classic  
despite having a different cast  
was likewise brutally savaged  
in fashion similar to Marion Crane  
by all manner of geniuses  
 
Pointless!  
was the consensus  
because scene for scene  
the film was almost identical  
to the original  
 
but this cinematic "experiment"  
proved fruitful, redefining  
insanity, summing it up  
into a single word for all those  
hypocrit'ics:  
 
 
 
Broadway
