My Best Friend

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.

  1. Quite the fun poem! I think most of those phrases have been used to describe me at one point or another 😉 Have to say I really liked “fell off’n the tater truck,” brings back some fun memories! Very nicely done.
