The Boyfriend

I bet that if you had a boyfriend  
 
Who always smelled like some cheese  
 
You send him under a water drip  
 
Pay his fare so he’d think it was free  
 
The fear in your eyes as he walked away  
 
Would promise you flack from your friend  
 
But it would be fun for you either way  
 
Hanging out ’til the day got to end  
 
The boy he would think you negligent  
 
Because you wanted him in clothes that were new  
 
A puddle would have just suited him  
 
The rain would have done the trick too.  
 
Just for the record nobody said  
 
The boyfriend couldn’t come back  
 
It’s just that the rhubarb smell of him  
 
Made showering on the right track.  
 
He’d skim on the soap and use little else  
 
So the subtle smell would still be there  
 
A thread of his nastiness lasting for days  
 
Like toffee bits stuck in your hair.  
 
But you love the worm, no matter how bad  
 
He stinks and turns off your friends  
 
It’s all worth the hugs and love that he gives  
 
And you know that this love never ends
