My crazy cousin

My crazy Cousin.

My cousin calls me crazy poet
Cause I don’t think like others
I’ve not seen her since she was three
A Flower girl to us lovers
When we got wed in sixty five
But now we write and all
Oh lord, we two are so alike
It’s just remarkable.

In eight weeks time, she’s coming here
To good old western Oz
I know we’re going to get on well
I do, and that’s because
That girl is crazy just like me
And she likes a good old laugh
She seems to be a grand old bird
I’ll say on her behalf.

She’ll bring her man, and son with her
They’re all creative folk
She can paint and write as well
And boy, it is no joke
The kind of talent that they have
It will be a joy to me
To meet up with forgotten kin
I can’t wait for this to be.

    Peter You will have a lot of fun with these crazy goofy relatives. Just don't cause to much havoc together. I have no money to bail you out of jail.. LOL Nice write. Thanks for the insightful and thoughtful comment on my In A Shell poem. To be honest, something like this kind of happened to me as a child. Hugs

    Thank you Robin, my cousins have been and gone now, and we laughed for the whole of the two weeks. Sorry to hear that you had such a terrible time as a child. Keep writing my friend, and let your wonderful words heal you of those awful scars...I appreciate your kind comments....peter

    oh my what great fun you will have. IT's so neat to have a relative that you can really relate to. I'm like that with my nephew. He loves to see movies and write just like me. I enjoyed this.

    Thanks Andrea, I am really looking forward to it, no one ever seems to relate to me, so it should be interesting. I am looking forward to showing them around my beautiful country, I do appreciate your comments...peter
