Today's poem - The Outsider

Not earth-shattering, but I thought I'd share, because I kind of liked what I did:

Why do you do that?
Why do you say that?
Why do you dress that way?
Can't you see that you don't fit in?
Don't you care?

I know it's supposed to be good to be an individual,
But how far are you supposed to go with that?

Yes, we are all individuals.

Don't take that too far.
Be careful how individualistic you are.

Ultimately, they may lock you up.
Minimally, no one will speak to you unless necessary.

Then they'll wonder,
Are you necessary?
