A Free Range Idiot - Poem by Francis Duggan

The one referred to as an idiot does lack the inner glow
But the meaning of a free range idiot is something i cannot claim to know
That's what a woman shouted to her husband or partner in the super market the other day
Towards him she was acting in an aggressive way
That he seemed a bit embarrassed one need not wonder why
And to her verbal insults he did not reply
And though idiot is one quite slow in the mind
On the internet the meaning of a free range idiot i could not find
I can only come to the conclusion that a free range idiot is an idiot of any self awareness free
Though her husband or partner did not seem that sort of a person to me
On her behavior she seemed idiotic and insulting in her loud and aggressive way
Suppose it does take all kinds as some are known to say
I cannot say that i envy the man his lot in life
To have one like her as a partner or wife.
