Don't We Know
He said 'why do all the girls go for the bad boys? '
She said because they seem more exciting
than the nice sweet guys
and like a peacock,
the one that struts more
gets more attention
from all the women who long
therefore for the bad boys.
It is like they exude confidence
and that is reassuring.'
He said," But they are the ones
who treat the women bad,
break their hearts,
and then leave them behind
and a bitter trail of angry girls
who hook up with nice sweet guys
who they then take that anger out on
and the sweet guys play the door mat
and take all that anger, hoping for love.
But when they are thrown overboard
they get angry and when they finally meet up with that nice sweet girl
who thinks she likes bad boys,
(sweet guy is now angry guy, attracting sweet girl)
the sweet guy is now bad angry guy-
mistreats sweet girl and the cycle begins again.
Now if sweet girl meets sweet guy and they hook up
one maybe sooner or later begins to wonder if they missed
something with bad boy or bad girl.
And they stray. Now we have a new bad boy and a new bad girl
divorced and on the prowl.
Sounds too much like high school
still playing out years later.
