Bad Homework

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Despite the sample answers provided
my feeble attempts bore no fruit
wrong answer after wrong answer
ceaselessly followed suit

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Teacher was also unimpressed
with the scribbles and shaky script
the shoddy form and presentation
she lambasted with pedagogic voice so clipped

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 But there was truth and correctness
there for all to see
for scrawled all around the margins –
copious doodles, in homage to CFC!

Notes

trigger:
A quote “like bad homework” – from an interview with ‘Girl Band’ on an RTE program: ‘Other Voices’.
Watch out for another emerging band: Le Galaxie.

Ok, so a poem with just the last 3 letters directly related to football, but once you’ve read the poem once, every subsequent reading should give the bigger picture!
