When the Going Gets Weird

weird animals from

When the going gets weird,
the weird turn pro,
my Sis told me,
with pride
and sisterhood,
my excellence
at weirdness.
Weird has always
felt familiar.
Weird comes with
its own
built-in laughter.
Weird makes
the ordinary
stretch its wings
and try a little harder.
Weird puts a shine on
and does a little tap-dance
just to entertain you.
Weird turns a world of
Somebody Specials
with their
totally unbelievable
If Weird could speak,
it would tell you:
Come sit by me,
and let me tell you
a few good tales.

One from the archives today, kids. Wild Woman is tired and busy, and weirdness is always a relevant topic!


  1. It was my high school motto: Be weird, it's easier. And that was before I learned the wisdom lovingly displayed in this poem.

  2. This is really cute. I hope we all reserve a bit of weird - for fun, for life, for making us special.

  3. oh, and it will get going, and it will get weird... especially with a face like that! ha

  4. Glad you brought this out of the archives. And the photo of the cute little aye-aye, which is rushing on its way toward extinction by apparently having no fear of people, whereas the people fear the helpless aye-aye so much they kill it.
    No matter how different things seem, it's all the same, all over the world.

  5. "Weird" is just another word for "unique."


I so appreciate you taking the time to read and comment.
Thank you so much. I will be over to see you soon!
