Villanelle: Aloof

Shoddy attire with a slow gait,
Unkempt hair and unshaven face,
Express my depressed state.

Before the fall they did me berate;
My self-confidence reduced to waste.
So, I dress shoddily and slow gait.

My body odor permeates
Because I do not bathe,
Express my depressed state.

The dumpster serves my taste.
On streets, I beg, ‘spare change! '
In shoddy attire with a slow gait.

Tragic they say, ‘a living disgrace! '
I stay aloof since I quit the race
And don't explain my depressed state.

I'm not lazy, I'm debased
And accept my fate.
Shoddy attire with a slow gait,
Express my depressed state.
