My Eccentric Great-Great Aunt

I had a great-great aunt named Phyllis
Who was really sweet, odd and eccentric
She was my grandpa’s father’s sister
She was always late to events
Had my family wait outside the door one time
For she was not ready with the food
She got half of it done
Cause she forgot to cook the pasta
So they all sat around just eating pasta sauce
Was always dramatic with her speaking to everyone
She even had a husband who was odd too
Took twenty years to get married
She wanted to elope cause she thought it would be romantic
She was about in her forties when she did this
She was pretty, fluttery and wore outlandish clothing
She would mail the Christmas presents late
To my mom and relatives when they were young
That is my eccentric relative
Which would have been neat to meet

April 8th Prompt: If you have not yet written a poem about your most eccentric relative, write it now. If you have written that poem, write one about your meekest, comminest, or simplest relative.
