just kept on spaffing words

so much to misconstrue

I was listening half awake

as a body does

all those years in school

was it me or was it the way

how that person standing up front

just kept on spaffing words

no matter the time of day

& what I wanted was to learn

about the things might help me

get out from where I was

keep going until the world was happy enough

to hear words clear spoken

enough love to make me stay

not this do this don’t do that rules

made up on the spot

to make us fools every which way
