​My teeth clench
when the marker screeches
walking away from the whiteboard
as the naysayer teaches.
Dangling prepositions
seems a minor crime.
Petty theft equivalencies
Split infinitives, the MO, mine
But I am determined,
as I skulk back to my seat
feeling my ears burn,
I’m gonna get this grammar thing,
I mean to seriously learn.
