Singles Awareness Day


I’m sprinting about Cal Poly’s campus

Hymning Mr. Tambourine Man

To the tune of another song of Bob Dylan


I’m making the funniest first impressions

Disturbing the Poly dollies but not the peace

They’re too freaked out to kiss their boyfriends


It’s not a sin to be happy & single today

It’s just what the Man wants

But now’s not the time for paranoia


“Won’t you be my Valentine?”

What does that phrase mean anymore?

Something materialistic, I reckon


I decide my ears need a toke

So I let them puff on my iPod earphones

Both of them get high on “Penny Lane”


You can tell your friend in the Bay Area

That Ben Simon is loving life

On the day when merry men suddenly slouch.
