Dingleberry - Poem by Mary Nagy

I cry when you are hurting.
I laugh when you have fun.
You're not a ''nut'' as some would say,
You're just a ''special'' one.

You'd rather sleep with animals
than brush or comb your hair.
If I say ''your clothes are mismatched.''
you say ''I just don't care.''

You don't try to be proper.
You pass gas at free will.
I say ''one day you'll act grown up.''
You say ''I never will! ''

You refuse to wear a bra still.
You moon your enemies.
You hold the cat and with a smile,
say ''I don't mind fleas! ''

You truly are a DingleBerry! !
I love you!

    your daughter sounds a lot like me. only my nickname is 'the bear.' don't ask me why...i don't know...it's just always been 'randi bear.' i feel sorry for all us kids with ridiculous nicknames that have no significance to our being whatsoever. oh well. (Report)Reply
