she often drives me crazy

she often drives me crazy
she sometimes drives me wild
she looks just like a lady
but acts just like a child

she is disagreeing somewhere
she is always on the net
she is putting out her point of view
to someone she’s not met

she is far too busy typing
she takes little time to think
she replies so recklessly
like her brain is on the blink

she is busy doing shopping
she is buying lots of stuff
she is filling up her basket
for she never has enough
