Never Included
Never Included

Never picked for the footy team. Didn’t get badges in the cubs.
I was expelled from school, and I’ve been barred from clubs.
I got the impression no one wanted me, after further snubs.

I’ve been kicked out of the army, and I’ve lost my job.
I’ve never won a prize. Never been part of the mob.
I’m never on the list. It’s enough to make me sob.

I didn’t get promotion when up against a buffoon.
Never part of the band. Just strumming my own tune.
I once went on a day trip. I was home by noon.

When I fell over I didn’t get helped by a passer-by.
Choosing from the menu they’d sold the last pork pie.
I know I won’t be invited into Heaven when I die.
