FREAK LIKE ME, by Hanna Smith

Loser, weirdo, FREAK.
Why me?
Ugly, smelly, FREAK.
Why me?
Minger, uncool, FREAK.
Why me?
Spotty, emo, FREAK.
Why me?

Ginger, repulsive, FREAK.
Why me?
Boring, hideous, FREAK.
Why me?
Unwanted, disgusting, FREAK.
Why me?
Inadequate, unpleasant, FREAK.
Why me?

Common, ordinary, boring?
Not me.
Average, undistinguished, conventional?
Not me.

Individual, different, unique.
Don't you want to be
A freak like me?
