Diatribe on the Injustice of Loneliness

(This guy has a bit on his mind. – Owen)

Hey ladies –

You know that sleazy guy who deflowered you
When you were too young to know better?

That wasn’t me, I’ve never done that.
I’ve never had sex with a virgin.

Hey, ladies –

You know that guy who’s all wrong for you
But who you can’t get your mind off of?

That isn’t me, I’ve never had that.
I am not and never have been any woman’s fantasy.

Hey ladies –

You know that guy who cheats on you
And abuses you?

That isn’t me, I’ve never done that.
I wouldn’t do it, ever.

Who the hell am I, then?

I have a career;
I have hobbies;
I am active and curious, and
I love women

What is wrong with me, then?
Why was I nobody’s first
Nobody’s fantasy
And nobody’s downfall?

Only one conclusion I can draw —

I must be

Nobody
