The Easy Way Out

An assignment to
Cross off the list.
Rather relax; why do I have to waste time
On homework, he asks.
Silly me, I say,
To think that writing a poem could be meaningful!
It's not; it's
Crap, I'm told.

Possibly the worst assignment ever!
OMG - I can't believe my teacher is making me do this!
Ever more and
More complaints.. then.. in two seconds he writes a
Simple acrostic poem.  Done!

Note: A version of this post is included in the anthology Songs of Ourselves, published by Blue Heron Book Works.
