The Man

He was an athlete

Says the many awards on the shelf

They were all first place.

He was a short man

Says the size of jeans in his closet

They were blue.

He was part of a family of 3, with troubles

Says the picture of him, his mom, and brother

They were fighting.

He had a dog

Says the bits of fur on the couch

it was brown.

He had a fire at his house a while back

Says the burn marks on the wall

they were never repaired.

He was out of a job

Say all the filled out resumes on the table

He was rejected for all of them.
