The Crazies – Writing 201: Poetry (Day 7 – Neighborhood, Ballad, Assonance)

Funny-Rednecks-31

The Crazies

The Crazies as it’s defined
Is a neighborhood of all kinds
Here is some of what you’ll find…

A pastor who is always scheming
A polygamist who is usually beaming

A newlywed couple who are active and fit
A snobby white guy who acts like a twit

A homeschooling mother who hides in her house
A serial killer who is quiet as a mouse

A traveling duo who live the good life
An old geezer who has no wife

A preppy family with a dog named bogey
An obsessive control freak who is always smoking a stogie

A hoity-toity couple who spoil their dog
A girl who likes to write stories and blog

And last but not least let’s not forget the seniors
Or the girls that lay in the grass, we call them dreamers

All of these people can be found on our street
So come visit sometime, I’ll save you a seat!

Written by, Michelle Cook

  26. Lol…. Oh there’s probably several of them too. That’s the scary part. This man is very creepy. Sometimes just stands in the middle of his yard and looks at his grass for hours. He also trims his grass with scissors, in order to get every blade the exact same length. And he never smiles… but has a deep dark vacant stare that will haunt a person for days. So spooky….
