Poem-a-Day April 2018 Writer’s Digest Challenge #12. Theme: Lament


Sarah’s Lamentation

Sounds like a social disease.
Well, it did turn her into a math lab rat.
Maybe that explains her pinkeye & insanity.
Elementary, they call it,
yet it’s anything but,
for what the hell does standard deviation
and correlation coefficient even mean?
So many hours spent crunching meaningless numbers,
yet she’ll put up with this horse puckey
a little while longer,
so she can graduate and get back to linguistics.
