Goin' Out Like A Soldier

-

I have lived without who ever my

__so-called "wife" was

And if she was Melissa

We never slept together

Woke up together

Nor shared a room

I never lived with any' my ex girlfriends

And the ones I did have sex with

We never spent the night

In fact

It was never at night

No

-

I have never had my own place

That had a kitchen

I never had all thee experiences

That ev'ry one else got

In high school

I had to wait 'til 24

To bust a nut

I never held down a job

Nor been O.K. off my medz

Since I need them

My memory is not clear now

No

-

I am a soldier of singlehood

A soldier of unemployability

A soldier on medication

I have 4 lives

I have survived

Without love

I have survived

Without a career

And if I die next month

It will be in my own home

Still single
