He walks the same route every day
at the same speed,
always sees the same people at the same time.
He always goes to the same shop
and buys the same drink,
you won’t ever know what he’s thinking
or how he’s feeling.
Once he’s at school he doesn’t say much
and does the same thing.
His hobbies include basketball and chess,
his favourite subjects are Maths, P.E. and First Story.
When school finishes
he goes the same route home.
He plays PS4, watches anime,
eats, sleeps and repeats
