See below for title

Insomniac attack is back or Animalistical (I'm not even sure that is a real word but F.I.(that is an anachronism that means fudge it( unless you’re an adult then you know which word fudge is replacing(or a poor kid raised in the wrong environment in which case you have my deepest sympathies(which if I’m being honest isn’t very deep. Some peoples sympathy is as deep as the ocean, mine as deep as a glass of water(people often wonder if the glass is half empty or half full but given all the water frozen in the ice caps how come no one ask is the ocean 2/3 full or 1/4  empty(one last thing fish always see the ocean as full regardless of the anything)
I'm beyond mythical
I’m Animalistical
Somewhat of a dull sphinx
Or prophetic lynx
The answer to my riddles 
Are riddles 
And the answer to those riddles 
Are more riddles 
Let’s get it out of the way
And say
It’s a riddle all the way down
Which is not to say
Anything I say
Can be mistaken 
For something profound
It’s a formless universe
Without meaning
Until you observe it otherwise
And if your wise
You’ll take care
To the meanings you give
And the meanings you accept
When you see me
And my magicians act
My mouth is spouting out facts
But those are just spoken to distract
The thing they lack
Is the thing you don’t observe
I’m sure it seems 
All quite absurd 
Your brain is designed 
To find patterns 
And in the absence of such
It just makes stuff up
So how can you trust 
What you perceive
When dealing with me
Which is not to say
Its not ok
We’re all flawed
In our own unique way
(Is that a double negative
Or a positive
Or positively negative)
Four lefts 
Make a straight
Though some would say
There is a problem
With the way you navigate
I would say I lost you
But I don't think
I ever had you
Try three lefts
And three rights
I'm the animal king
Of misinformation
Like a platypus 
Look here I'm a duck
Now look here I'm a beaver
Now look here
I'm an otter 
I can lay eggs
Ok that's last part 
To much nonsense
Even fur me so scratch it
I can't my claws are poisonous
Ok ok ok
Here are your two problems
Your perception is limited
A tiny bubble 
That needs to be burst
So you can create 
A slightly bigger one
The human brain
Is susceptible
To messages
That are subliminal
And you are constantly
Under bombardment
So I'm killing three birds
With half a stone
Making you smarter
And deprogramming you
If you think my math is wrong
Your subconscious gets it
Dumb people say
Look at the big picture
We say 
look at the biggest picture
And you too
Can be animalistical
