There are always the
odd ones
The unusual creatures
The outcasts
The losers

The catalysts
antithetical protagonists
the tragical comics
the farcical fatalists

With big minds
And narrowed eyes
Straight backs
And low spines
The tops of the basics
The alkaline addicts
Always the latest in line

There are always the
Curvy crusaders
Hell-bent and backflipped
The Loyalist traitors
The browbeaten bottom feeders
Expended expectorators
Even cheap diamonds still

Resolution reclaimers
Boldness beta-testers
The brazen
The brash
The brave
The last

Give them a mile
They’ll convert it to inches
Give them a trial
They’ll lose it in minutes

Yet they are the reasons
Teachers give
