• Boo Hoo Hoo! - a poem

    Boo hoo hoo!I cry and I moan and I whinge and I cry.The world is against me so why should I tryto get up in the morning and put on a smileand be better than this for even a while? If I wash and I scrub, I'll still smell like meand the smells, not the smell that I'd like it to be.My skin's like a suit that some other guy wore,it got crinkled up and was hung on ...
