Woe is me

Woe is me
by Skews Me

Woe is me such the apathetic attitude these days
I hear from instructors at schools in a haze
When the students care less about learning in class
While the textbooks teach nothing like they did in the past

What passes as an A today is a horrible joke
A score years ago a C that would stand tutors’ pokes
Yet these kids think they know everything, that’s all around
Computer clicks they’ve mastered, makes some parents frown

I’m forced now to write poetry in the simplest of verse
Since complexity of form has been waylaid by terse
Form of substance instead what is now so obtuse
Where’s the engine I plead? Everyone’s a caboose
