Lackadaisical Literacy

You’ve been sifted and sorted
Because mentors ignored it
With their pokerface grins
Not once dealing you in

Perhaps it was apathy
Lackadaisical literacy
Executing excuses
Each with nescient nooses

Hang on, the clock hasn’t chimed
You can still learn on a dime
Put your shorthand to the plow
Wax your lyrical highbrow

Do it this time by the book
Wolf down the words overlooked
Let commas fill your lungs with air
And periods make you stop and stare

May your words now cultivate
Your pen with pow’r to captivate
