The Honourably Fictional Reader

Dear Honourably Fictional Reader,

Welcome to the island of misfit toys

Home of the heavenly hell-bent

Dump for all the good girls and boys

Who never found out where you went.


Take a left at the curb of puberty,

Go straight and narrow when you hit the alcohol and drugs;

Then you’ll hit counselling, far as the eye can see;

Make sure you survive. Hugs, not drugs.


Then you reach your nine-to-five,

You gotta stay alive!

When you reach the end of your life,

Remember you had no strife.


The only question is whether you existed or merely lived;

The only answer lies in what you did.

You’re on the island of misfit toys;

Passed over by the good girls and boys-

But you lived.
