Good God! I’m like an undone homework
Submitted to a tutor by an anxious pupil
Who over the weekend had tried
Yet failed to make headway.
Teacher– would you spank me?
Mock, flatter, or encourage your pupil?
Solve me for me, oh Lord.
Or teach me how to do me better
That the pass mark I may not miss.
