The Worst of Rhymes in the Worst of Times

Slides exist, along with swings—
So do birds with broken wings.
Test the syrup in the cup.
If it’s bitter, lap it up.
Don’t despair when despots rule.
One day they’ll be dead—how cool!
Break bad habits or they’ll last
Even after your life’s past.
Happy are the ones who do
Homework by the rules—it’s true!
First or last, last or first,
These rhymes are the very worst!

Recalcitrant Student

Because he did not want to learn,
His lessons the student did spurn.
He cast sidelong looks
At all of his books—
His homework he tossed in an urn.
