To the Jerks Who Helped My Puberty Along

With glasses now I'm "four-eyes?"  (Yes, I'm skinny.  Yes, I'm plain.)
But it baffles me you noticed since you haven't got a brain.
My skin's so white!  No kidding?  Well, in the summer I'm bright red!
You too were born my color and you'll be it when you're dead.
I'm frigid and unloving ‘cause I won't go all the way?
Well, you don't even turn me on.  I bet you turn girls gay.
I got "lucky" playing ping pong when I beat you?  Is that right?
So strong I've grown, I bet today I'd beat you in a fist fight!

Andrea, this is witty, clever and excellent poetry - I simply adore it and all because you beat him at ping-pong. Bet you could beat him in a fist fight! This is 100% a 1st! LOL! Hugs, Jennifer.

I got a kick out of this Andrea. Some guys treat girls mean because secretly they have a crush on them but know they wouldn't stand a chance. : ) xxoo

G'day Andrea … time and patience are the ingredients to even up the bullying of youth - where one succeeds, one remains stagnant - thanks Andrea - Lindsay

Wow, sis, I never knew you were bullied like that. I wasn't, I was just ignored, I guess.

If they did not "say" it, they acted like they were thinking it on a few of these. I also was told I had hairy legs. Remember when I started shaving despite Mom's rule we could not do it yet? It was for that guy in 8th grade. Another guy said I had a mustache. It was very faint but he had the nerve to tell me that at a dance. that got taken care of too. hahaha. And he also looked into my eyes, which have always had very large pupils, and accused me of being on drugs.

Too cute Andrea. You tell 'em all. This really made me smile. I always say if someone doesn't like me I've gotten along my whole life without them in it and I can get along a while longer. God Bless, JB

Nice manifesto here. You stood up for your self nicely it seems. I sent a poem to the American Tolkien Society which I have been writing for since 1985. You can see my poetry there if you go to ATS and then hit "In the Hall of Fire". Peace & Love Matthew Anish

aww Andrea so sorry you had to put up with these morons in your early days - if you met them now it would be you who are the strong one. Powerfully penned and believe me i can relate to much of this especially the bullying about wearing glasses and being plain. hugs jan xx

Oh, the glasses in the 60's were horrid. I could not wait to get into contact lenses. Anyway, I did meet one of these guys at a HS reunion years later and he came onto me. Did not even know who I was. That was so weirdly fun for me!

Sorry for the kid at the end of this...Well expressed...

Way to go Andrea, sadly the world is full of jerks, many in our past and they can stay there. Good luck. Tom
