It's Assumed ...


It's assumed people who live alone
Are not with it, and thus, they stay home
When, in fact ... it's not that way, no, not at all
Some of us have no other options to pull ...

And so we watch the lives of the others around
In some sense - envying the way they do the town
But knowing, deep down, they're not real winners
For their lifestyles are keeping them thinner ...

Not really insofar as things they eat
But - to some extent ... the people they meet
For the lives of all the folks with whom they seem to connect
May not be any better than our own ... upon reflect ~
