Let me know if I am crazy or not, better to know, so I can act accordingly...

Am I Crazy…?


Am I crazy to turn on my air conditioner,

Then go to bed and sleep under a blanket to keep warm?


No more crazy than my mom who used to do the same,

Using an electric blanket to keep warm was not too sane…


I only use a regular blanket, does that make a difference?

Or am I as crazy as she was or do I seem incoherent?


Am I crazy to think, that if the fleas off of Rufuz,

Did leave and are now living in my rug, are they biting my ankles, these bugs?


Am I crazy to believe that a miniature dehumidifier is capable of clearing my home?

Or do I need one that is bigger, or do I need a smaller home in order to roam?


Am I crazy to believe that any of the above will make any sense to you?

Or should I just leave off immediately and allow you to get a clue in lieu?


Am I crazy enough to care what your opinion will be?

Let alone what my mind says I must do and see, oh gee!


Am I crazy enough to notice that I am going off the wall a little more each day?

Or does that come from the write, the read and the general if anything, way,

I let myself write, read and bring anything I see into my sight…?


           AM I CRAZY?

You are as crazy as the rest of us, Ed. And you are just like my wife in the A/C Department. She cranks it up to full blast, puts on her flannel jammies, and gets under a goose down quilt!

I say, just turn the damn thing off - and sleep naked!

Dear Ed,

Following is a quick sanity test that may help you in determining your mental soundness:

1) Does the Pope shit?
2) Do trees shit in the forest?
3) Are you shittin' me?

If you answered "yes" to any of the above questions, or if you have ever answered "yes" to any question, then there you have it, the answer to your question. On the other hand, you may just be full of shit. Either way, I enjoyed your poem.

Always your friend,
