the underdogs-poem by Jen Persichetti

  the feelings never fade.  you know the ones… the dreams of becoming “one of them”thinking your life would be better if you were… you wonder if you’ll ever escape the need to fit inbut what does that mean anyway? – “FIT IN” aren’t we all in this together? or so they want us to believe… i guess the world wouldn’t be quite right without the Misfit we are popular in our own right –  we are the ones wearing the beaniesand the tight pants… black of course you know the kind –  we stay in on friday nightsthey go out and live for the night we can’t live without our tea and bookthey prefer vodka…straightand the company of their own we’ll never be one of them…and that’s okaywe’ll fight the good fight and live to tell why -- the anthem of the underdogs  Copyright 2018 Jen Persichetti Poem by Jen Persichetti Drawing by Janne Karlsson PUBLISHER´S SPACE: Hey, here´s a really great book you´re gonna need.
