Elegy to Ambition


I didn't do my homework.

I hope we'll make amends.

Last night I didn't study,

I went out with my friends.


I stayed up late last night,

So can I skip the test?

You know that science project?

I didn't do my best.


I think this book is stupid

From what I read online.

That painting looks atrocious!

I hope it isn't mine.


You think that I'm delinquent?

I've just one thing to say:

If you want my attention,

Then shorten the school day!
