Mama Is A Crazy Girl


Mama is a crazy girl,
my children sometimes sing;
when Mama dances on the table
snakes hanging from her head.

When Mama's friends wear business suits,
her Mama is the rage
of teenage girls who want her clothes,
tie-dyed, faux fur, and mesh.

Mama is a crazy girl
when she says what's in her heart;
when others only whisper,
Mama can't hold back a shout.

At cocktail parties, mama smiles
and politely chits and chats,
while seeking an accomplice
to make a secret pact -

to have some fun wherever she is,
to not let boredom swell,
no silly rules, or performing fools,
her Mama is herself.

Mama is a crazy girl,
a crazy girl,
a crazy girl.
Mama is a crazy girl,
and there's no denying that.

(1989)

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
