A friendless man sits be on a bench
In a park on one heated afternoon
He was a proper man without a stench
And a heart filled with too much gloom

He had a good paying job
Taking care of fellow employees
No one considered him a snob
But forgot him like the breeze

Walking many miles home from work
Stopping at the same gas station
Always being friendly to the clerk
Then off to his next destination

Living a private life he never did discuss
For no one ever showed interest or asked
Never ever starting any kind of fist-ted fuss
He always did whatever was the next task

Taking a bite of a fast food cheese burger
Wondering if his kind deeds were ever recorded
Drinking water to avoid sodas pointless sugar
Knowing that his kindness will not be rewarded

Sighing having finished his lonely meal
Realizing that their is nothing more
To his dinner, to his life, to whats real
He silently wonders what is it all for

As the months pass he forgets what its like
To smile, have fun, and the importance of friends
Continuing his boring everyday long hike
In his life of uneventful, unacknowledged trends
