Poem: “Have You Lost Your Mind?” fr. notebooks, Jim Stallings

Have you lost your mind?

Misplaced your head

Down the hall

Or under the bed?

Forgive me, but note this,

You’re still quite capable

Of major mischief—

Oh yes, we have seen

The bad boys

On the hill

Seeking every sort

Of riotous mean thrill

But come home now

Your mama’s got dinner

And surprise hoorah

It be a crusty old pie

Made of bad boy brains.
