The Boys In The Library - Poem by Leslie Alexis

I overheard them while in the library.
-Two young men of age eighteen.-
This was what I heard them say:
They said there are obnoxiously loud
They said they dress in saggy pants
And sit as if sitting on their backs,
The way a lazy dog would do;
They use women and keep no curfew.

They spoke of the younger brothers.
And spoke so badly of them, but
They said they too had many girls
And when I saw them they were slouched
And they were obnoxiously loud,
And with their pants, they couldn’t walk;
You should have heard them talk.
They said they’re going to party at two;
They find faults in what the younger do…?
