What is the point of learning this?
Why not teach me something useful
like how to be a good father
or how to make a Denver omelet.
Some basic auto repair skills
would be most helpful
Or at least teach me how to find
a good mechanic.
Teach me to keep the women in my life
from walking away.
Or how to get a great deal on airfare.
You know, I never did learn
how to play the piano
or to make a flaming rum punch.
And how does one get a spaghetti stain
out of a white tee-shirt?
I’d like to know what that girl
looks like naked,
the one over there who looks just as bored
as I am
and I want to know how it feels
Teach me how to corrupt computer files
so that I never have to pay bills again.
Show me how to avoid an IRS audit.
anything but this.
