Les Is

LES IS

Les is a moron.
Not that it’s a bad thing
but don’t cheat off of his tests
or have him do your taxes
or, you know,
pick up lunch.

Les is a moron.
He repeated first grade,
but thinks it’s because he was so good,
they needed him to model
for the other kids.
I don’t know where he heard that,
but the fact that he believes it?
Les is a moron.

Les is a moron
but it’s not entirely obvious
so when you meet him,
you may not realize.
Not even on the first date
or the second, or…
Oh.
Fourth date?

Oh.

Well, he’s a good guy, Les,
even if he is a moron.
You two may be very happy together,
so long as you like that sort of thing
or can learn to live with it
like I have.

He IS my best friend…
