Skippin’ Desks like Tests

when you’re still so
unimpressed with your own
showboat’s second finish
or first place, blue
ribbon best,

then satisfaction becomes
the last gasp of a futile
shipster’s quest
,

when you’ve skipped over the desks
n’ tests to know you don’t need
to waste your lead on
all of ’em,

and pass on ones not worth your
loyalty or the string of
sleepy mornings,

then satisfaction of the written
word shan’t be dampened
by our dried out
learning.
