Weirdos

Weirdos

A Poem by emipoemi

Weirdos make the best of friends:

They’re always up for fun-

A child still dwells within their souls

Beneath the moon and sun.

 

Weirdos make the best of friends:

They’re all they need to be-

They’re round, they’re flat, they’re far from square,

Except in honesty.

 

Their heads may not be firmly straight,

Their feet may not turn right.

They’re wise - in cracks; they’re quick - in wit;

They’re bright when given light.

 

Yet Weirdos make the best of friends:

They’re constantly on call-

They care, they share, they but require

Your friendship most of all.

I really enjoyed the line
"They're wise- in cracks; They're quick- in wit"
because the structure made me think of a person finishing another person's sentence. I am very proud to be a weirdo, by the way. (:

Hello!



I observed that you reviewed some of my poems (and you did it nicely), so I decided that I should check one of your works too!



Your poem is really funny and it has a true realistic message. I can find myself into it (and I bet that every weirdo can).



You are outlined in an indirect way the features of a "weird" person and not only using your own vision.



In conclusion, I really enjoyed your poem!

Congrats!

Nicely written. I'm guessing that my instant thought matched that of most readers, i.e. thinking about weirdos I've known or still know. There are the ones in the public eye like on Friends or Big Bang Theory, but I mainly thought of former colleagues who never quite 'fitted the mould' and were a breath of fresh air. Life would be dull indeed without their paradigm challenges and, as you say, honesty.

Indeed. Thanks for reading! Glad you enjoyed it.
I love the word play here and the smoothness of the rhyming that makes it quite perfectly roll off the tongue.

It's fun and light alright, but also clever, which I very much like.

Beccy.

I love this! As a time-tested weirdo, I take this as a shining compliment 😉 Your simple yet quirky & fun rhyme scheme was - much like your subjects - delightful to spend time with. This is a lovely little ballad one could easily hum a tune to. Well done!
