In My Element
“You can’t have fun writing a history paper,”
is what my friends would say.
Ah, but you see, this page is my mic
and your eyes all watch as I start the show.
I clear my desk like I would clear the dance floor
from the wanna-be stories and tales.
It’s a tough assignment, but I’m up for the job.
There’s been a teacher I couldn’t crack,
because I get what they mean
and I see where they go.
all those metaphors of blue curtains
just come naturally to me.
So yes I have fun
on my Microsoft stage
and yes I show off
when it’s time to turn it in.
Because here, I’m in my element,
and in this race, I will win.
