Playground Boys

Playground Boys

playground boys
arguing
whose dad
is tougher
and who's dick
is bigger

playground boys
arguing
over fractions
of an inch

in an hour
the playground boys
flunk
their math exam
arguing
tomorrow
who's smarter
for getting a point or two
more or less
on the equally 
failed
exam

playground boys
always
fussing
over
fractions
of inches
never
understanding
what flunking the test
like all
their other tests
means
for the future
of what they might do
with their 
precious dicks

flunky
playground boys
turned
hand to mouth
factory boys
welfare boys
measuring grievances
injustices
just like
their measly
scrawny dicks

playground boys
still
measuring dicks
with
junk cars
junk women
junk kids
junk ideas
junk memories
encapsulated
in junk stories

grown up
playground boys
with their
pawn shop predictions
thrift store wisdom
and
their bottom shelf
bargain brand
lives
