ars poetica

poetry is life
we catch it and write on
paper so we don't

forget what we saw
and we can tell every thing's
story through our eyes

N

personally i
don't like this letter it makes
bad things i don't like

i got two N's ma
what does that mean?
mean's i need to shut up and
keep my mind clean

of anything that would cause me to
laugh, talk, or just straight up be loud
and i gotta get face outta the clouds

i need to work hard
cause now hardly workin'
i need some thin to day so i can't be seen lurkin
in the back of class laughin my ass off
like its no problem
but it is so

i do all work though
and now i know
how not to get an N

"promotion in dout"

dear bortoluzzi's
your son may not graduate
with love board of ed

i wish it were that simple
but it really isn't
i must stride to
provide a satisfying grade
or in middle school fifty one i will stay

for another year
that's not right
I've done what i could
i will not go down with out a fight

so with a pencil as my sword and
note book as my shield
i run on to that endless battle field

with an army of teacher in front
and legion of friends at my back
in to school i charge yell attack

silence

no hugs good night
no " i love you"'s
no words

just a touch on my shoulder
as she walks away with tears in her eyes
