Quixotic Thoughts (odd word poem)

Fred is being so quixotic thought Chris
been a long time since he has acted like this

Guess Beth is to blame for these lofty romantic feelings
and his thoughts of chivalrous freewheeling

Gee, it seems like only yesterday
Fred said bachelorhood was here to stay

Because Fred was so down to earth
that is until love his heart gave berth
