    Growing Up a Nerd

    I grew up on purple people eaters
    And teenage meetings in the sky
    Where we fought on angels wings
    To see the posh kids die.
    We wore blue jeans and doc martens
    We lived to see our best friends fall
    If only we’d walked over to them
    Or even tried to crawl.
    All I know is that we can’t stop
    Battle blues and all seems lost
    Parents lose their children too
    We can never know the cost.
    I’m just one more nerd who lost
    Himself in fanciful dragon games
    Where I could be the monster and
    Eat the posh kids in their shame.
