Observations 7 “Every Day Man”
If you are the possessor of a sensitive nature you may not wish to read the last verse. However, I haven't used the fourth word in the third line of the last verse gratuitously - you should see Every Day Man and his Game Boy!
I see you almost every day,
I pass you in the street.
We never seem to smile at all
And our eyes they never meet.
You sometimes look sad but cute,
In a scruffy kind of way -
Your ‘trackies’ full paint and holes! –
Get a new pair on pay day?
Your breath could use some hot mints
Or strongly flavoured gum.
It could kill at twenty paces –
Girlfriend gone home to mum?
I don’t think you wash too often.
Well, autumn’s really kinda cold,
To stand in the bathroom naked
Would prove to be rather bold.
You carry a JJB sports bag.
I think it’s seen better days,
Can’t imagine you at the gym,
That belly knows better ways…
Better ways to get pleasure –
A Game Boy’s such great fun! –
It stops you masturbating in public,
In London that just “isn’t done”.
