Buddy


Buddy has a hand gun & hasn't slept for 3 days,
he has mood swings you know,
his Father stopped abusing him when he reached puberty
he has school tomorrow

He has a part-time job,
he has experienced unrequited love,
he keeps a stilletto blade in his sock
he is bored of your sympathy

It could go either way, do you care
he won't thank you anyway
don't get involved, he's a statistic
a body bag will carry your hopes & best wishes

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
