My Buddy


My buddy is an outcast.

Yes, her reputation’s bad.  

Some say she’s superficial,

others claim she drives them mad. 


She gets up people’s noses

and she may be a pariah

but I swear I’ll never leave her

for she’s all that I require. 


My buddy is creative

and she likes to josh about. 

Some say she isn’t serious 

and that she’s lacking clout


but she’s really very loving

as she wraps you in her arms.

Although the masses don’t agree,

I love her quirky charms. 


No, my buddy isn’t popular.

She hasn’t many fans

but she helps me with my reading

and her name is Comic Sans.
