Owl Poetry & Prose

Are you a Trophy?

Are you a trophy?

Are you the guy everyone wants to say they know?

Are you the one who stands out at a show?

Do your parents constantly hear, ‘My what a handsome son

Don’t you want to find him a suitable one?’

Are you invited to parties by perfect strangers?

Have you noticed yourself being showered with affection, adulation by people of all ranges?

Do people consider you a catch? Are you paired with many, constantly matched?

Are you the guy who has the brains, the family, the money, the cars

Do you find yourself surrounded by hangers on at bars?

Are you wondering who your friends are, have you many

Have you any?

For when you strip away all that makes you what they say

Will you have the same affection, the same attention

Will anyone give a damn, when you are no longer ‘the man’

Are you a regular guy trying to build his own life, create his own story

Or are you the marked one, the hunted, the all encompassing trophy?
