Day 308 – The Game

I never wrote in the proper way,
I failed every essay I tried–
I just couldn’t get my thinking
to flow in the proper direction.

It wasn’t until I was older that
I figured out what they’d always wanted–
I loved the structure, I twisted
the rules to beat the game.

And now I have to teach the rules
but I do it half-hearted, I cut the corners–
I hope someday they see through it,
beat my game, too.
