From the book Revenge of the Lunch Ladies

My family thinks I’m crazy;
that I’m loopy as a loon.
They’re certain that the funny farm
is coming for me soon.

They say I’m certifiable.
They claim that I’m deranged.
They tell me that I really ought
to have my head exchanged.

They’re utterly befuddled,
Which I think is pretty cool.
It drives my family crazy
that I’m crazy for my school.
