Today’s poem was inspired by the prompt at the NaPoWriMo website. After filtering through a number of familiar phrases and clichés, I settled on one that just seemed to fit. Enjoy!
As crazy as hell –
All her cups aren’t in the cupboard
And she’s a little left of center.
As crazy as a loon –
She’s one french fry short of a Happy Meal
And one brick shy of a load.
As crazy as a bug –
She’s off her rocker
And she knits with one needle.
As crazy as a bedbug –
Her driveway doesn’t go all the way to the road
And she’s weird as a 3 dollar bill
As crazy as a soup sandwich –
She’s nuttier than a fruitcake
And she’s got bats in the belfry.
As crazy as a vegan T-bone –
She’s a June bug in May.
And she’s not playing with a full deck.
As crazy as a peach orchard boar –
She’s a sandwich short of a picnic
And a beer short of a six pack.
As crazy as they come –
She’s lost her marbles
And has a few screws loose.
As crazy as a shit-house rat –
She fell off’n the tater truck
And she ain’t right in the head
As crazy as me –
She’s that girl in the mirror
And she’s my best friend.
