`a Day In The Life Of An In-Between - Poem by Tiffanie Lein

24jan08.

Today is yet another monday:
can't wait for four o'clock.
Physics my way will sway
Fill my mind with stock

But hold, I'd rather Wednesday
When two hours of History,
Takes me back so far away
Unravel all mystery.

But for now i'd tie my hair
This is far from lax
I'd snip away the spare,
And spike the rest with wax.

Put on my pleated skirt
But i'd have to cross my legs.
Would rather be in shorts and shirt,
Makes me feel so neg.

Got to pack for training
Tomorrow I'd get to smash!
But routine is so boring
Feels like running on a lash.

Art is too cool for my team
But here I am a poet.
Shakespeare makes me gleam
They wonder why him i covet

And sportmen, well, love their sport
But I prefer to read
Similar, but not their sort
At least we all drink mead.

Sometimes here but others there,
Can't quite find my place.
In everything I fare,
In all I'm middle space.

    Tiffanie,

    This was a clever, well-written verse. I loved this stanza, because it is so real.

    Put on my pleated skirt
    But i'd have to cross my legs.
    Would rather be in shorts and shirt,
    Makes me feel so neg.

    And yes, Shakespeare makes me a little bit hot. He had so much talent. Who reading him, wouldn't feel the call to write poetry.

    Love your work,


    L&T
