You are so anti- social.
We have just been
Brought up so differently.
And around different people.
I felt like a fish
Out of water.
I felt that your
Friends would look
Down on me.
I was too shy to speak
To guys and men!
And I took the comment
To heart when it
Was just your humour
That I mis-interpreted.
So I left the table.
And enjoyed speaking
To the lecturer.
When I told them
About my school situation
She said I should
Take a stand and
Had every right
To question it. So
I knew leaving after
That year was the
Best thing for me.
And my mum is wrong.
I do not dislike you
With a passion,
Just a clash from
Having had very different
Experiences of life.
And my mum gets
On better with males. Period.
I will admit that
It is a source of pain
That my mum
Admires you and
You seem oblivious
To the way she,
Treated me growing up.
Your mum, sis and dad
Know but I guess
You can't ever know
Because you get along
With my mum.
I hope you can
Find a way to be
Gentler with Troy.
I do not know the
Whole story but
I can identify with
The way they feel
That compared
To you, they feel
Like they have failed.
And that other
People have failed them too.
It is easy to get
Stuck in that mind set.
And you say things like:
Do you know the worst
Thing about earning more money;
I pay for all the drinks today.
And yes I need to
Simmer down over
You calling Paul: The scheme,
From the reality tv programme,
At Grandfathers 80th.
You may as well
Have called us:
The chavvy cousins.
We know we are
From a working class
Background. But
Wind your neck in.
I advised Paul not
To go on holiday
With you and your
Friends because I
Knew that he was
Too young and
Would maybe have
Picked up one of
Your jokes wrong
And the whole
Thing would end
In disaster. Not
A personal vendetta
Against you. I just
Knew how a group
Of lads can get
Carried away and show
Off for each other.
And he did not
Know your friends.
It was a bad idea thats all.

Default Once I wore a snood.

I was fed up of
Having my outfit scrutinised.
So I tore extra holes
In an all ready
Fashionably ripped pair.
My judgement was
Still a little skewed,
But any decent parent
Would have been
Able to tell
I was reasonable now
And my mum could
Have said something
Please change those
We are going up
Town after all.
But she was
More interested in
What the staff thought
Of her and could
Not risk revealing a glimpse of
The reality of home life.
And thank god
Two girls from
My year at school
Laughed openly in
The cafe we went to.
And sniggered where
Did you buy those jeans?
I remember seeing
The girl I got on
With when I was in.
She was with a bad crowd
And dressed in
Party clothes during day.
Neon shoes and bright
Clothes and make up
And I knew in an instant
That they were still
Not well and so
When I seen them
On a night out
I just said hi.
But Fred had warned
Me that the gang
We saw her with
Were big trouble.
So I was not
Embarrassed to talk to her,
I wanted to know
How she was doing.
But I was with Fred.
And I thought what
If she is running
With that bad crowd.
I saw her in a new job
And she blushed
When she saw me.
We both wanted to
Leave hospital behind.
Bye emz.

Default Two dollars

I was a rebound I think.
He was not over his ex.
I was told he still saw
Her the odd time while
Seeing me. And
The girl in my circle
Said he ended it
Because I would
Not "give it up."
And one said he
Did treat you badly.
But he did not
Want to sleep with me.
I slept over and,
He never made a move.
He would have asked
Do I need to wear something?
Or are you on pill.
So I guessed he was
Seeing his ex still.
And I don't think
He wanted to be
The first one I slept with,
At the back of his mind.
He did not want
The responsibility of
Being my first experience.
I would rather it was him.
One night I was round
And we were watching
Million dollar baby
And he said this
Is a quiet and slow film.
And we heard his
Brothers bed tapping
On the wall.
And a little while
After my friend
Bursts in on us.
And we were under
The covers and had
Been kissing but
I was startled.
And sat up.
She saw no zips or
Belts undone and
Just glowered shrugged
Her shoulders and
Then she disappeared
Back to his brother.
She is with your other
Brother now? Don't
Tell me you have too,
I said partly jesting.
And he said:
I only have eyes
For you princess.

Default Patrick - Invitation.

Not just one but
Three players! Would
You like to help out
In the training today?
And Patrick declined,
I do not know what
His reason was.
It was daunting and
Something most would
Need to think about.
This was the cream
Of the crop after all.
There was a petition
For national coach
Just the solitaire.
And hoosey said:
Patrick only got it
Because he was overly
Persistent and kept
On haranguing them.
And he had the nerve
To ask us to sign
The petition in
Favour of chess.

Default Cleaning

The security guard was
Quite passionate about
The martial arts
In our area. My boss
Told a group of kids
They could not loiter.
And he said at least
You did something
Construcive and didn't
Trail the streets.
I wasn't trying to
And not many people
Had really patted
Me on the back
Even back when I
Was doing it. When
I was with my
Friends one night
I complained that I was
Cold and how could
They do this all the time.
And one said because
I would rather be bored
With my friends.
How do you put
Up with x and y?

Default Espanol.

I had a more varied
And balanced diet
Than my team mate.
There was nothing I
Could eat one night
And It was just luck
That the one night
I had to plump
For fish fingers and chips
That I was seen.
And my team mate
Laughed about the coincidence
Because I was
Always eating like them,
But my diet was healthier.
I was too careful with
My diet and needed a
Touch more good fats.
My yoghurt was my
Source of protein at breakfast
As meat early on
Did not work for me.
I had cereal, toast,
And yoghurt with fruit.
Again I had more
On my tray than my
Team mate but when
I put sugar in the
Greek yoghurt, Espanol
Gave a quizzical look
And I had to explain
That it was tarte/sour,
For Scottish taste.
At a competition
I was so nervous
My stomach churned.
So I grazed,
All day throughout.
I never ate big meals,
Between fights at
Any competition. Fruit,
And snickers for
The peanuts. A cheese
Sandwhich at lunch.
I ate in the canteen.
So he maybe never
Saw me eat much
In the stands.
I used to go away
From the stands
For the fresh air too.
I ate on the go
Instead of lugging
Too much weight.
I like fresh food.
And banana's go brown
In the heat with
No air and banana chips
Are so tasteless.
It was always really hot
In the arena's.
I sat out for an hour
After jerking my knee.
And Espanol said:
You must alway's eat,
Start to do more,
Weights to strengthen leg's.
Thanks for believing
In my potential.
Thank you very much.

Default Blonde.

Aside from the fact
I suffered a dismal defeat,
You were quite persistant
In picking out physical flaws.
And I had decided If I
Could not beat them
I would join them.
Germans like butch blonde lesbians.
I apologise. I was young
Just like you were.
And even if I had not
Have said cat food,
You would still have
Killed yourself laughing,
Worse than big bird.
Teenagers learn the hard way.

Default Jagged edges

Fred said it himself
My parents never came
To visit. Ever. We had
To go see them.
And my mum sat on
Her phone the whole time.
And my dad just moaned
About working all the time
And watched the sport.
He spoke enough so
We knew we were
Actually there in the room.
If Fred and I had a kid,
My parents would not
Have been so enamoured
And attentive and counted on.
My mum did not even
Ask if I wanted to come
To the wedding.
They are clearly embarrassed
By me and like the
Piggy bank, they taped up-
Yes I stole money once
When I was about 16.
I only spoke up at
One meal when I was 18.
It was 12 years ago!
I know the score.

Cool Re: Petals

I was so close to my test.
All we did was drive
Around and around and around.
All he had to say was:
It is a long straight road
Be careful to stay under 30.
I went over the 30
By a couple of miles
Because we were doing
The same thing over
And over. There was
No need to come
Up with some master plan.
I knew he was stalling.
I should have just
Changed to someone else.
I did two lessons a week
For a month and he
Sat for one and spoke
About all the plants
Growing in a persons
Garden. Do you know
That is sweet peas.
So I put on the hand break
At a junction and said:
I am here to drive
And not look in
Peoples gardens. And
I went back to one.
Then every second week.
And then I took
A break and had some
Lessons and they
Persisted with his silly
Idea of imagining
While I am driving
Out of town that
That a deer may
Jump on the road.
And in town that
A kid may run from
A garden gate and
To move my eyes
Over each and every
Opening. Then he would
Contradict himself and
Say that as long
As your eyes stay
On the horizon they
Will pick up all
Movement and changes
Including when you
Get close to the car
Infront. So I was hyper
Vigilant and tense all the time.
When I got a different
Person years later.
They told me to relax slightly
In one lesson.
I was over thinking.
And just drive. Just drive.
I remember having
My own car and
I was working so
I was being cautious.
And I saw in
My wing mirror
Who was on my tail
And I watched the needle
Creep over 60.
When I was passenger
Going to Inverness
With Fred, he over took
And a car coming
The other direction
Was also overtaking
And we were a whisker
Away from a head
On collision as Fred pulled
Between two cars.
Fred was doing in
Excess of 100mph
With the cruise control on.
We would have
Been toast and he
Was compeletely unfettered
By it, saying it did
Not happen why
Get "worked up" over it.
When the pipe burst
In our house
The colour drained
From his face.
He looked like
He had witnessed
The coming of the
Anti-christ. Yet when
Driving he was
So arrogant and gungho.
I did not feel safe.

Cannot be fuked having
You around either.

With a dreeb like you.
