The shirtless jogger



I stopped taking shirtless picks
it got me nowhere with the chicks

In the bathroom I locked the door
in the mirror I flexed some more

I jogged everyday shirtless
just to come home feeling worthless

I woke up early for the run
to snap a picture of what I've done

Hours wasted in the mirror
attention elsewhere, personality bare

chiseled six pack gone in a day
eternal loneliness is here to stay
