Ten PM Sunday


Why I'm failing English

Eenie Meenie Minie Mo

Logos, pathos, I don't know.

Shakespeare, Orwell—Nate the Great?

BS-ing powers, activate!

Hyperbole, metonymy,

Allusion, tone, and simile.

Compare, contrast, and analyze.

I grab more coffee, rub my eyes.

AP Lang? It is despair.

I write on a wing and a prayer

Oh no! A cliché! Can't use that.

And can't punch teacher, filthy rat.

Hands on keyboard, start to type

Just keep going, do not gripe.

Indent, intro, statement, next?

Find my notes--and find the text.
