Nobody knows his name.
No matter what he tries to do,
It is always the same.
He keeps up with all the trends,
He knows them inside out.
Each one he pulls off perfectly,
Even that selfie-photo pout.
Each week he brings a box of muffins,
Though nobody knows why.
He used to try and hand them out,
Now he doesn't even try.
He shares the muffins with the crows
and eats them one by one.
For consuming that much sugar,
He sure looks miserable when he's done.
He looks down at the empty box
and you see a little smile.
The crows fly off and he lies down;
They'll all be full for quite a while.
The same routine, every week,
I think so that he can pretend,
That in the year that he's been here,
He's made at least one friend.

I thought that I had replied to this AGES ago!
Thank you. So much!
I am really proud of how this one turned out, and so glad that I had the inspiration, resulting in a poem not stemming from my own bottled emotions.
I don't particularly like that line myself either, but it was the thing that came to mind, and after inspection of the rhymes of "out" there was nothing else I could come up with to fit there.
It came to me during a drama rehearsal when we were eating muffins a cast member had brought to share. But aside from that, the rest of it was quite 'random'.
(I thought I'd replied to this comment ages ago!!! :/) But I hope it's gotten better for you!
Muffins are amazing
(I'm really sorry, I thought I'd replied ages ago!)
It was a very good poem though! Beautifully written and emotional.
like I think my heart cracked a little. I've very tender-hearted
with people who live there lives alone. I don't think there is
anything more heartbreaking. I'm going to start with saying,
I love the end. I actually didn't see that coming which surprised
me and pulled the emotion right out of me. My only complaint
is the second always in the first stanza. If it were removed,
it would have the same amount of syllables as it's rhyming
partner which I believe would flow better. This is beautiful.

I've edited the line in the first stanza - as per your suggestion - and I do believe it flows better now. Thankyou for that suggestion!
