A Start ~ Nazeem Khan

Waltzed into the class
At the beginning of the year,
Not knowing what to expect.

As the second term began,
We were forced into poetry.
A whole month long of it.

April was optional, fortunately

However here we are now in
The middle of September, forced
Into poetry, like a minor into chores

Here I am in physics class, not
focused on vectors but rather on
poetry, and writing this very poem.

April was optional, fortunately.

  1. Yes! Poetry wins over Physics!

    My work here is done...

  2. This makes me smile.

  3. This made me smile - first the resistance to poetry, then poetry takes over in the physics class. LOL. This reminds me of when I was a student, scribbling poetry in class.

  4. You have a sense of humor... and a fine way of expressing yourself. Keep writing but perhaps not in Physics :)
