The Underdogs by Jen Persichetti



the feelings never fade.

you know the ones…


the dreams of becoming “one of them”

thinking your life would be better if you were…


you wonder if you’ll ever escape the need to fit in

but what does that mean anyway?

 – “FIT IN”


aren’t we all in this together?

or so they want us to believe…


i guess the world wouldn’t be quite right without the Misfit

we are popular in our own right –


we are the ones wearing the beanies

and the tight pants… black of course


you know the kind –


we stay in on friday nights

they go out and live for the night



we can’t live without our tea and book

they prefer vodka…straight

and the company of their own


we’ll never be one of them…and that’s okay

we’ll fight the good fight and live to tell why


— the anthem of the underdogs
