Eerie McDreary

via Daily Prompt: Eerie

Eerie was four years old when her neighbor told her
that her name was an unusual one
and downright crazy if you ask me
and what was her mother thinking

Eerie changed her name to Cheery
but couldn’t cry during sad movies

She called herself Weary but became
too tired to play in the schoolyard

Leary didn’t work either because
she believed in Santa Claus

So she stuck with Eerie and at twenty-two
she married her high school sweetheart
Thomas P. McDreary who was star quarterback
and she became Eerie McDreary
