Why Some Are Single


I know I could of ate my brain

Had I had a heart for a mouth

If I were to set myself apart

How Holy would of been my ark?

A whale of Injusitce

Sweeps over the land of hopping frogs

Dare me to go on?


Too bad. I will

My utmost ribbiting forces

Compell me to leap

From feeling to feeling

In a heart I don't have

Feeling heartless

And banishly overdrought


And inconsolidated

Make believe love

Is all that there is

If a wolrd like ours

Has men that die unmarried

Doesn't that mean

That some men

Just weren't meant for love?

Or does his singlhood

Up to his very death

Make that a sin?

It isn't his fault he found no one

He just didn't

And died

To say I am going to get hitched

__some day

____or eventually

Is to lie to my face


And say that "love is for every one"

IF "love is for every one"

__nobody would die unmarried


Or whatever the Hell you wanna call it

I should not have to prove my point

Ya'll should just stop lying to me
