On the Extreme Fringe of Lunacy…


Out of my mind,

I cannot find the rind,

The best eatin’ it does tend to be,

Forget the fruit inside; I eat the skin,

People though kinda look at me strange to my chagrin…


What meds I do take,

I in the sink do have to make,

A little bit of this and a pinch of that,

Some of the stuff off the ground I do have to rake…


My shrink does say that it’s the homemade meds,

But if I do take what is recommended by the docs,

Never will I be able to hide from my two heads,

My own medications do allow me some place to myself conceal,

Then after taking them they have a tendency to in my body congeal…


So what do you think?

Am I on the outer fringes of lunacy?

Does my clock run in reverse?

Did my little choo-choo go round the bend?

Or has my trolley done derailed…?


Someday maybe I will know and understand,

Then maybe on my lunacy I will be able to you expand…

Hey Ed could you post me some of that homemade blend of yours? It seems to help with the creativity. Lunatic? Nope but you are a very creative soul.

You are only as looney as you feel, Ed. Sanity is subjective and I think we all have our moments when we question our sanity.
Take care,

Ahhhhhhh... don't discount lunacy, my dear Eddie M... sometimes it's the one thing that separates us from the humdrum, middle-of-the-road where all the same ole, same ole types tend to congragate.

You hold a position of unique, one-of-a-kind... hold onto it!

I'm glad you're you! katy xox

Like they said at Woodstock "Theres always a little sanity in an insane asylum..."

Well now you are probably just going through what I term the aids epedemic. Rolaids, hearing aids. seeing eye aids, aides for activities of daily living. But then I have never claimed to be sane what do I know? The last person that pissed me off oh never mind.

insanity presumes a state of sanity
from which it (insanity) deviates
but which like the fabled eldorado
does not exis
