High School Football Hero


Straight edge fag! Get the fuck out of our school!
They all look the same : captain, quarterback, lackey.
                                                                                                                                    Assholes, I shout back.

Maroon and gold varsity jackets : in uniform even in the cafeteria.
                 An apple smashes against the wall splatters   :   juice and pulp plop onto our table.
Metro Scum! Get the fuck out of out school!

One snorts : coughs up a loogie.
                                 I flick       the spit from the back of my neck.
                                                                                                                                              Asshole, I shout.

They wait in the stairwell :  hide behind doors
                        watch for studded belts and mohawks.                     
Hey Smurfette, get the fuck out of our school.
He flicks my blue hair : yanks my backpack : pulls me
                        into the doorway : his friends smash the door on my shoulder.             

                                                           Patches, pins, colored hair, X-ed up hands
                                        stand for more than a local scene and straight edge in these hallways.

Freak. Get the fuck out of our school.
                                                                                                                                                 Asshole, I laugh.
