About the Poem
This poem goes out to all the "cool" kids out there. The title came from one of my best friends, Caleb. Every time someone would say or do something stupid he would say "You know man, that's pretty sad" in this hilarious accent. I'm just trying to bring to everyone's attention how lame it is to try and be "cool".

You Know Man, That's Pretty Sad
"Cool" kids like to think they're hot stuff
And everyone else ain't cool enough.
We're supposed to follow their bullshit fads.
You know man, that's pretty sad.
They call me a fool
'Cause I never cared what's "cool".
They won't give me a chance
They say that I'm sick.
'Cause I won't sell-out,
I won't be a trendy prick.
Life's not what they think.
They're not always what they seem.
It appears they love
To mess with my self-esteem.
I'm not what they think
Life's not what they've thought.
I am who I am
And I do what I want.
When will individuality come into style?
I hope it won't be a while.
I don't need the "cool" kids
I've got better friends.
I don't care for the "cool" crowd
And all of their bullshit trends.
