OUTCLASSED

Why’d you do it with nothing to round the fact
As you would say, “Drinking alcohol, smoking cigarettes!”
As a matron of the Temperance Movement, a participant
Not really participating, but enjoying the quotations of vice
For their sake, as a teacher eating her chalk to spew lessons
Or my racket, beyond every girl’s Rubicon: outclassed

  4. hmm.I take that ouclassed bit with a pinch of irony and pun.fascinating as always. but sometimes I do wish that you would lend a bit more meat to your poems, open the windows just a bit more, so that we have a few more signposts to guide us.
