Pride

There.
Sat alone at the bar.
Justifying his presence with a glass of coke.

There.
Sat alone at the bar.
Escaping a 'culture' he's been told he should love.

There.
Sat alone at the bar.
Nervously talking with the other customer.

There.
Sat alone at the bar.
Awaiting bands promised, not fitting in The Scene.

There.
Sat alone at the bar.
Feeling pathetic, draining the glass and gone.

There.
Sat alone on the train.
Travelling home early, excluded and alone.
