unlabeled

not from me

there goes the pretty boy

in his pretty little car

got his cool designer shades

ready to take the town out for a ride

he’ll get pretty little girls to fall at his feet —

you know the kind

with box-blonde hair and

spray-on tans —

he’ll get flattery and free

who-knows-what

but not from me

’cause pretty boy

he annoys me

with his sky-high ego and his

dirty mouth

with his beach bum hair and his

surfer tan

with his popped collar and his

frayed khakis

he’s dressed to impress

but his thin veneer

doesn’t fool

me

if we stripped it away

would he be any more than a

mess of drunken

one-night stands?

he’ll get his fair share of

praise

adoration

adulation

exclamations

that pretty boy will …

but not from me

Standard
