this boy named True

7 Mar

he wasn’t hired because

his chubby hands were shaking

and the more he tried he sweat

until he stank

this boy named True

he couldn’t name all the planets

although he did know Pluto

but then Pluto isn’t a planet anymore

no matter what he said

he seemed so silly, and so sad

this boy named True

if perhaps he didn’t call in sick so much

or gaze at the girls so much

then maybe his life could be different

he thought, and then he wondered

“if  I reach my hand out far enough

could I touch the sky?”

and then he missed the bus

this boy named True
