Simply Weird

Simply weird

They say they know

They don’t act like it

They say they understand

They don’t sound like it

They say they sympathize

Please gimie a break


Truly weird

They think it’s you

You are nuts anyway

Label and diagnosis to prove

You can’t be of value no more

You are incoherent and oft despicable


And how weird

Your past means nothing

The pills mean everything

They know it all it seems

They paid all their dues for that

What’s to your name anyway


Ain’t it simply weird

What can you have to say

We all seen you go 

Bungee bungee here I fly

And now what you mean

The Looney no more?


How weird

Dermatologist better than Psychiatrist

Body better than mind

Psychology is pharmacology?

Please take your looney off

It may cause you some shocks


Thus it gets weird

And weird it stays

A merry go round

Hide it from them

Stash it in your trolley

Wrap it up in your joint

Or is the bottle?

Get over it  you can

Off goes the siren


Simply weird


Bungee bungee I go

In my mind sometimes weird

But I can’t stop cause

Life itself is

Sometimes Simply weird


Marie Abanga aka MAG likes to describe herself as a “Jacqueline of several trades”. She is an everyday woman and mother with a zigzag profile. Let’s give it a try! She is an Activist, an Author, a Coach, a Consultant, a Feminist, a Lawyer, a Lecturer, a Prince 2 Project Manager, a Psychotherapist, a Philanthropist, a minister of the Word of God and...! She just loves to sum it up by saying she is a person of passions and a tale of talents. Her life’s journey has filled over 6 books already and her three musketeers keep her busy at home. MAG is also the founder and CEO of the association Hope for the Abused and Battered, and the Country Director of the Gabriel Bebonbechem Foundation for Epilepsy & Mental wellbeing. The plethora of life's experiences and shenanigans she has lived through and learned from in near 4 decades of existence, have equipped her with such an arsenal to coach, train and motivate just any and everyone. She is so charismatic, dynamic and full of life, going by her designed mantra of 3Ds: Determination; Discipline and Dedication. These sum her+her quest to be the best version of herself and impact others perfectly. She attributes all her wealth of knowledge to her conscientious attendance of both informal and formal school.

    1. Hi Molly, I am curious why you think this is a fun poem, unless you mean sarcastically then could be 🙂 Thanks for your comment anyway and wow did I enjoy your book. My review actually going on the amazon shortly and on my blog tomorrow. All the best
