Excuse Me, Sir, When Will I Ever Use This?

School is great for those who know
what they’re doing, I suppose.

Some find the experience enlightening.
Faraway, realities inundate their bodies.

I wish I could factor myself right
out of this linear equation.

Here’s a stat for you. I knew 88% of 20%
of some shit I’ll never use. I realize it’s

the bottom-line that matters, but what
really is the sum? Seriously,

I’ve got to know the degree of
a polynomial in order to

write stories and poems?

These past few poems are revised versions of older ones.

"Good, bad, I'm the guy with the gun." Ash Williams from Army of Darkness
