Flakey Boys

Flakey Boys

A Poem by Destinyxi

Inspired by The Reviewers poem 'Flakey Girls'. This is the boys version of it. Enjoy!


Flakey Boys


You know they look good

These flakey boys

They put on that smile

And you buy it


They reel you in

They’re in it for the catch

You’re the fish

And they’re the fishermen


They just want to get wet

It’s a typical one night stand

They’re booking their schedules

She’s today, she’s tomorrow


And they flirt

They flirt so sweet

They kiss so good

And they look so nice, wanting and hard


You know it won’t last

But for the moments

That he takes you

You think it’s worth it


Where’s your pride, darling?

He’s just leading you on

He’ll ride you till you’re out of gas

Till your engine stops running

Then he’s going to jump start another car

And continuously repeat

Till he gets to his destination


Don’t be another car

Just another ride

A brick to step on

Something flat to travel along


Find your pride

And find someone who rides you

Just as much as you ride them

So if your engine breaks

So will his

And you’ll be stuck, side by side

Unable to drive to a new destination


Ah, these flakey boys

They’re in it for the catch

They’re in it for the ride

Ride ‘em back

Ignite your pride

Shake them till they’re all out

Of flakes
