- What Matters
I’m going to miss school once again.
All of my teachers accept this without fuss,
except my Spanish teacher who I know thinks it’s inane.
She acts like she’s about to burst and complain,
but she won’t because there will be at least one witness
and no matter what, I’m going to miss school again,
not because I don’t want to be with the rest of the gang,
but because I have to be at Shul reading books like Genesis.
So my Spanish teacher shouldn’t think it’s inane.
Her reaction makes my blood boil in my veins
because I know on this occasion I'm blameless
for missing school once again.
It’s not my fault I have a religious strain.
She’s not even a good actress,
so my Spanish teacher should just say that she thinks it’s inane.
When I leave the class I’m frustrated with her disdain
because she knows that my absence is not without basis.
I’m going to miss school once again
even if my Spanish teacher thinks it's insane.
