Me ≠ School


Oh, throw me, rather than do my homework,
Off the bleachers behind the gym;
Or ban me from attending prom; or make me
Run the Track; send me to the smelly guys' locker room,
Or lock me up with the arrogant know-it-all,
And give the key to the toughest guy on the football team,
Surrounded by over enthusiastic cheerleaders;
Or trap me in my statistics class
Given endless tests that I haven't studied for
Homework and projects make me anxious
But will show no stress,
Being the great procrastinator that I am.
