Teenage Confusion - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

You asking me 'why'
is a trifle rich
I'm just a good guy
but you are a bitch.

All the fish in the sea
aren't for you but for me.
When I gave you the shove
I had found my new love.

All your cries are in vain
'cause you gave me much pain.
My new lover is gay
and we go all the way.

This was inspired by a teenager
who found a 'better way' for
himself.The language has been 'lifted',
near verbatim.

    This is 'sadly' funny to me. I think this happens more often than we think nowadays. I guess a 'sign of the times'. sincerely, Mary (Report) Reply
