Quirky - Poem by Stanley Cooper

Though very much surprised
It really doesn’t irk me
That my outlook’s been apprised
As being one that’s quirky

I do believe that label
Though my poems may quirky be
Is just another fable
If describing perky me

A label, say like kinky
Perhaps more to me akin
Or even rinky dinky
Would get less below my skin

To be seen by friends this way
Is both dismal and it’s murky
It will never make my day
To be known to them as quirky

    Well, from one quirky person to another........I loved this poem Stanley! Great flow to it, very fun!

    And, I'd rather be called quirky than rinky dinky anyday! :)
