Sonny I Guess I'M Crazy - Poem by Anthony Han

Dad why do people go crazy?
Well son what do you mean?
They do commit odd acts of such
Slaughter thievery and perjury

Well son what do you think they need
Someone to talk to like a therapist
Son now now they could also use other sorts
Think of art poetry painting crying

You see people do crazy things
So much hypocrisy as poets we try to change that
The son tries to speak but the dad keeps going
DAD! I'm only in 1st grade remember

Plus dad that doesn't seem like enough
Oh boy you got a lot to learn
Did Edgar Allan Poe need therapy boy?
Didn't he die a alcoholic dad?

Well that was a bad example
Sonny I guess I could use someone to talk to
Dad you got me
I forgot silly me but you still got a ways ahead

I'll get Uncle Einstein
Relaxing away my thoughts gaze around
Boy my son is a clever kid
Probably gets it from Joan o sigh

Poet's Notes about The Poem

http: // v=T3uvwfw0Xck&

Inspired by Calvin and Hobbes comics, also the importance of families

The poem depicts unstable father who gets by art and crying every now and then. The son of the artist asks him why do people do crazy stuff. The advice of both of them just by talking opens up their relationship even more. It even strengthens the ties to outer family such as Uncle Einstein. Lastly concluding the father reminisce of the mother who past away when the son was born Joan
