NOT A NICE GUY
(5/26/15)


Brother Bollocks
does not
understand

the opposite sex
seems
to despise him

they look
upon him
with disdain
and just a bit
of fear

in his
mind
he is acting
honorably
and in the highest
moral mode

they ask
for veracity

loyalty

fidelity

he gives
them
all of these
things

but the manner
in which
he delivers
these qualities
is always
in question

always lacking
somehow

he is too
blunt

too literal

too truthful

they want
their reality
with a thick veneer
of fantasy

they want
to live
in a movie

Brother Bollocks
has not the energy
to be the actor
that they desire

life is difficult
enough for him
in the direct
fashion

he gives
them
simple honesty

they answer
with their
absence

he lives
his life
alone

happy
in the fact
that he need
not lie
to himself
