April 26: Square Peg

by allisonkujiraoka

Let me introduce myself

I will not state my name

Instead I’ll let you guess that part

Just state my claim to fame

I come by way of happenstance

You’ll see I don’t belong

I stick out like your sorest thumb

And hum an off-tune song

You recognize our differences

The urge is to retreat

I threaten the conventional

I’ll not admit defeat.
