JOHN DOE

there’s no such thing
as the common man
there’s no such thing
as the average joe
or boilerplate
there’s no such thing
as ordinary
no such thing

conventional
me thinks a myth
there’s no such thing
as Jones or Smith
or John Q Public
everyman
there’s really no such thing

they said that you are “typical
and regular, the usual and
wholly undistinguishable”
it hurt and made you sting

but there’s no ho-hum
or dull or dim
and no so-so
or proper prim
there is no john doe
here you know
there’s really no such thing

  1. This is worthy stuff. Lesson we’d be smart to remember, that the last thing we want to be thought of is blending with everyone else. Six billion people later, we’re drifting towards sameness though.

  2. “they said that you are “typical
    and regular, the usual and
    wholly undistinguishable”…..I think I’ve always yearned to hear these words! No one wants what they have I guess.

    Excellent Pete! I’m behind on reading your blog. (and many others.)

    Bisous,
    Dawn

    • I’m behind on everything sweet Dawn. 😉 You’ve always wanted to be typical eh? From what I know of you that’s impossible! hah Thanks for reading.
