Clinically dysfunctional

Is what the doctor described, as me.
I went for a 2nd opinion
To challenge his hypocrisy.

How dare he say im dysfunctional
He knows, nothing about me.

I know there are some issues,
In my own family.

Like my grandma, often runs around town.
Completely, naked as we have found.

There is an explanation, you see
She was a nudist, in the 60's
Who believed in peace, love & unity.

Then there's my brother, 
what a cool dude!!
He has an "imaginary friend"
Who we call "drew"

They often come for dinner,
& hang out with, the family.
We ask him, will he ever get rid of "drew"
Since he will, soon turn 52.

My sister, I love her dearly,
Has been a career criminal
Since the age of 13.

The last crime she committed,
Was a bit,  embarrassing it seems.
She stole from a homeless man,
To give to, the needy.

The family pet,  that we named sasoon,
we thought was a cat, 
is actually a racoon.

I could go on about my parents,
Who've been a role model, to me
Unfortunately, they are incarcerated,
In a psychiatric facility.

They will soon be out, though
Locked up since 03.
For public lewd, misbehavior
Just a lil discrepancy.

Clinically dysfunctional
No way,
That could never, be me...

contest: what annoys you
