typical.

By , Encino, CA
My stupid English teacher gave me this poem to write
What she doesn’t understand is that I’m not very bright
I think I have dyslexia
Or maybe a.d.d
But whatever it is,
Nothing is coming to me
I’ve been writing for an hour but this page is still bare
But what I don’t understand is how this is fair
I have so many things running through my brain
If I don’t write this poem soon, I’m going to go insane
In a second ill be writing about a fabulous pair of shoes
But all I really want are those studded jimmy choos
I always end up on facebook
No matter what I do
And since I’m facebook stalking I’ll tell you about a few
Like there is this girl named Taylor
Why is her top so low cut?
Does she know that in all of her pictures I can see like half of her butt?
And then this guy named James
Why are you so hot?
If you weren’t such a jerk,
I would really like you a lot
And lastly there’s Kendall
I want to punch her in the face
She takes up all of my news feed
I really don’t care that she joined a group called “Outer Space!”
Now back to this poem
It has taken so much time
I’m having some difficulty making it rhyme
I really like Daniel
I don’t think anything rhymes with that
He better not like this girl
She’s ugly and she’s fat!
It’s like a mass of all the thoughts that are running through my head
Oh look I got a text, screw this,
I’m going to bed
