Skew div border of one side only using one div only

Skew div border of one side only using one div only

Problem

I have created a skewed div using following css

#outer-left{
-ms-transform: skew(-30deg,0deg); /* IE 9 */
-webkit-transform:skew(-30deg,0deg); /* Chrome, Safari, Opera */
transform: skew(-30deg,0deg);
background:#333333;
width:200px;
z-index:20;
border-bottom:3px solid #2E8DEF;
padding:10px 30px 10px 75px;
font-size:20px;
color:#2E8DEF;
position:relative;
left:-50px;
}
#outer-left:after{
content:"";
display:inline-block;
position:absolute;
width:20px;
height:100%;
background:#2E8DEF;
float:right;
right:0px;
top:0px;
z-index:10;
}

#inner-left{
-ms-transform: skew(30deg,0deg); /* IE 9 */
-webkit-transform: skew(30deg,0deg); /* Chrome, Safari, Opera */
transform: skew(30deg,0deg);
display:inline-block;
}

And used two divs i.e. outer div to skew border and div and inner div to cancel the skew effect for text.

But I have achieved same effect using only one div in div3

Look at fiddle: http://jsfiddle.net/5a7rhh0L/

IF I do the same as in div 3 with more text it gets distorted. But not so in case of div2 with more text using 2 divs.

I am completely aware of what is happening here. I want to know if DIV2 can be achieved using only one div i.e.

Context
Hello
and now without using two divs i.e. inner and outer one.

Solution

I believe this is what you want:

http://jsfiddle.net/5a7rhh0L/3/

CSS:

#a {
    position: relative;
    width: 120px;
    padding: 10px 20px;
    font-size: 20px;
    position: relative;

    color: #2E8DEF;
    background: #333333;
    border-bottom: 3px solid #2E8DEF;
}
#a:after {
    content: " ";
    position: absolute;
    display: block;
    width: 100%;
    height: 100%;
    top: 0;
    left: 0;
    z-index: -1;

    background: #333333;
    border-bottom: 3px solid #2E8DEF;
    border-right: 20px solid #2E8DEF;

    transform-origin: bottom left;
    -ms-transform: skew(-30deg, 0deg);
    -webkit-transform: skew(-30deg, 0deg);
    transform: skew(-30deg, 0deg);
}
