National Poetry Writing Month 2018 Poem #5
I can’t believe you’re asking me that!
When are you going to use these skills?
Now I’d love to stop the whole lesson
And go over all the adult applications
Of what we’re currently working on.
But I know you’re just being difficult
In order to waste valuable class time.
So why don’t you come and see me
At lunch and we’ll have a meeting
To discuss how this knowledge will
Greatly benefit your distant future?
Oh? You say you’re busy at lunch?
That’s rather inconvenient .
But at this point, that’s not negotiable.
We’ll see how much enlightenment
I can bestow upon you during one
Meeting and then determine if other
Subsequent lunches are necessary.
