Poem of Excuses

Why I Forgot To Do This Poem

(A poem of excuses)

Eighteen Minutes Late

I didn’t scroll down the page

My dog ate it

I looked at it last night

My computer ate it

I didn’t look carefully last night

I ate it

I hoped that the only assignment was the twitter one

I glanced

By leaving the assignment to the last minute I gave myself a time constraint

The syllabus ate it

I tried to do it in class on purpose.

The Internet died

My computer died

And Comcast died.

If time doesn’t belong on a wrist it doesn’t belong in my homework.
