I have at least four windows open on my desktop
And the likelihood of me reading any article is about one in a million.
It’s Friday
Tomorrow is SAT day
And prom night
And I’m so exhausted.
The likelihood of me continuing this paper
(That I really do need to write)
Is about one in a billion

How is it, then, that I have focus enough to write a poem?
I guess poetry can write itself,
But research takes time
And explicit attention.

I have a feeling that today won't be very productive...

The author's comments:
My inspiration for this was boredom, lack of focus, and the overall feeling of exhaustion while sitting in first period trying to write a research paper.
