The Despised One


“Once you start changing 
a name, you see, there's 
no reason ever to stop. 
One always hears one 
that sounds better.” 
― Evelyn Waugh, 
The Loved One

I dilly-dallied here & there—
Miss This and Miss That
And of course Miss Thing

I tried to be nice and—
Get along with everybody
Whether fags or str8ts

But after awhile though—
My dears, I simply had
To finally give it up

No matter how much—
I tried to be liked and
Loved like the Loved One

It just didn’t pan out—
I found myself labeled 
“The Despised One”
