A Singular Man
I always seem to tell a sad tale
but I can't help being pessimistic;
in my life I've had many knocks
which explains my hard attitude
towards the rest of society.
They say I am not an ordinary male;
it has been suggested I am autistic
but it's something my mind blocks.
I'm certain that view is skewed
as it implies uncertainty and anxiety.
Although people think that I'm frail
their assumption is too simplistic;
despite being thin I'm strong as an ox.
To say otherwise would be rude
and I'd regard it as an impropriety.
Also I am sure they cannot fail
to notice that I am very artistic
when I go out with my paint box.
But because my models are nude,
I have acquired some notoriety.
