My Mommy Told Me My Destiny - Poem by John Randal

When I was just a little boy,
my mother said to me,
'Johnny,
you're an ugly kid
and a loser you shall be'

so Johnny was a loser,
the biggest one you'd see,
and noone in this fucked up world
could lose as much as he.

His health, his wealth, his self-respect,
he lost along the way,

and on the tombstone of his grave

''Mommy's Loser' ' it shall say
