by Hannah R.T.

Street lights blink out as I pass, 

I am that much of a stud. 

Babies dont cry, 

but dogs howl at my footsteps. 

And women take notice 

and men think twice 

and little kids suddenly have business 


Because Im not beautiful 

and Im not pretty. 

Some would say 

attractive is a stretch 

but not to my face, 

because my body is thick, 

and my fingers are thick 

and my hide is too thick 

to care 

and my knuckles are thick enough 

to wear well 

on your face. 

So, Im a stud and a half!

(and such a liar, 

such a liar)
