Haiku: Malcolm in the Middle
Mom's an insane shrew
Dad's apathetic, mean kids-
Dysfunction is right!

Manchild dad, mean mom
They're not the boss of them now
This family's screwed up.

Don't piss off Lois
She's channeling Satan
Her wrath knows NO bounds

Hal's kind, but cause he's
Inept, wild, and paranoid
Lois wears the pants

Francis got kicked out
He was a tyrant at home
Now, he hates his mom

Piama, his hot wife
But so scary to argue with
Look out for her fangs

Reese, the delinquent
Hell of a mischief schemer
Yet a huge Book Dumb

Malcolm's a genius
But you'll want to strangle him
High-and-mighty ass

Dewey, once a tyke
Til family life hit him hard
Now the Only Sane Man

Jaime, the fourth child
Parents are far too sex-crazed
To take precautions

Ida, salty hag
Now down a leg and widowed
Abrasive woman

Craig, so pathetic
A Butt Monkey; Loves Lois... But
Unrequited Love

Dysfunction Junction
Most of 'em need to be locked up
They're crazy as SHIT
