Known As Gump

He wonders why we look at him funny,

He wonders why we stare,

He has no idea that we don't like him,

And ask why, he would not dare.

He drives me nuts some days,

He is simply just too slow,

He walks around all goofy,

Thoughts for him just don't flow.

He laughs out loud at nothing,

He mutters to himself to,

He stands and waits for time to leave,

What else is there for him to do.

He rides to work on a bike,

He says he knows the best way,

He has no car or license,

Not much else to say.

He is known as "GUMP" to us,

He is something to behold,

He makes me want to puke,

When dealt his hand he said I'll fold.

HHHmm...misleading title for me...thought the poem was based on FOrrest Gump...but anywayz, this character dat u described is kinda like him too, huh?? I like the simple , direct way u used here,,,although the last stanza's last 2 lines seem kinda forced...Jus a little suggestion here....Smilesz.'s good work/!
