Back to School

(I realize that, sometimes, I have a hard time taking the prompt seriously. Like now. – Owen)

He wanted to go back to school
But he had trouble copin’ —
He wanted to learn ploughing, but
That field just wasn’t open

Philosophy of Equines put
Descartes before the horse;
He failed his golf design class as
A true matter of course

He thought he could do macramé,
But managed just one hitch;
He tried dog gynecology,
Each patient was a bitch

Yes, everything he tried to learn
He failed – except one thing:
That local schools can soak up all
The money
One
Can bring


In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Lazy Learners.”
