Shine a Light Into the Night

 

 

 

 

 

The principal (spelled with pal because he’s your pal)

paces back and forth in front of his desk thrusting

his admonishments at you. “You must have math

in your life to pierce the darkness of the unknown

that lies ahead of you. Math will keep you from

becoming a common prostitute. Math is the one thing

that will shine a beacon of light upon your dismal future.”

To his dismay, I choose words instead –

to shine a beacon of light upon my dismal future.
