Truth and Dare
Get the bottle,
Take a turn,
Take a swig,
Feel it burn.
The room was waiting, spinning and undulating,
But dares make better gossip next week at the quad,
Amid all the laughter, adolescents are just after
Popularity points and trying to be part of a squad.
It’s a choice,
Don’t be square,
Keep your poise,
Choose a dare.
But the pressure was on the nerdy kid from class,
Trying to be daring, uncaring and just plain bold,
Does he have the balls to really go through with it?
Because in the school halls cool kids are just as cold.
“Kiss her” they chant and they rant urging them on,
Peer pressure is a bitch and the beer is sure to enthrall,
But when drunken teen and hormones are raging full on,
Self-control goes out the window with alcohol.
Do it dude!
Be a man,
First times are supposed to be special and memorable,
It’s supposed to be pleasure yet something didn’t feel right,
But she’s in the zone and they both want to bone,
So fuck it, he thought, it’s sure to be a great night.
Smell of liquor,
A face, a haze,
A cloud, a fog, no exchange of words or any dialogue,
Just the grunts of teens and laughter from the other room,
Fast, swift and easy, now they’re both feeling queasy,
Then he rushes to throw up in the nearby bathroom.
On the floor,
Close the door
