Red Pen

Afraid of the red pen
The marks on the paper
It's silly I'm fearing
That tiny red saber

Afraid of the red pen
I turned in my homework
The ink will be catching
In scarlet my prized murk

Afraid of the red pen
So I won't even look
Guess I can't take criticism
I've ditched my notebook

Afraid of the red pen
But pick up I must
The essay by my bed
Corrections in dust

Afraid of the red pen
But all that it said
was "Good work" and "Revise"
Those not-so-wicked marks of red
