My Ex

My ex Stacy
is crazier than me.
Take her out and see
six new shades of lunacy.

She waylays me
at Starbucks and the mall.
It's like I'm being stalked,
and she doesn't know that she's an ex at all.

In five minutes, complete with rhymes, wordplay and a story in 8 lines?

Damn!

Hey, maybe it's a brain condition, let's not be judgmental! :P I wrote about someone from my past as well and I was thinking about this book, 'the man who mistook his wife for a hat', it was written by a neuroscience, he narrates case studies, maybe your ex should figure in volume 2 along with me myself. :P

You are brilliant. :)

Kiss.

What do they say, first fleeting impression is probably the truest? This sketch nails everything there is to say. (However, us dumdums in AA are hammered by our sponsor drill-sergeants to NEVER trust our first thought, which is also the sickest one.) My poems pass like my bowels.

She doesn't know she's my ex at all
Will she ever know? Who will tell?
Not I said Little Piggy, not me
Nor me, after all she's my love

BTW, my ex knows. So do I

(It rang my bell, sorry, Mom Z)

You are a genius - but I've told you that before.
