Verse And Worse

Random Wit, Errant Rhyme. Not A Literary Crime

In geometry lectures he was so complacent
He got confused with parallel and adjacent
In algebra he floundered at every equation
In first aid he couldn’t dress an abrasion

He was a champ
Everything equals

Oh dear, he and I have much in common!
Geometry and algebra bored me tears at least at science there were some cheers :)!

Worse yet was his history,
Where wars were a mystery
And timelines ran circles around him-
Best to send this scholar to the gym!

While geometry's a bore
And algebra's a chore,
First aid can't wait,
or it'll be too late.
