Time Warp

forgot her pencil
add to the list of hours
now lost from our lives

impossible choice
parent failure never ends
and doubt always wins

what’s a pencil worth?
droopy eyes, stressed homework spells
my child no more

i wanted the best
since data governs our lives
and steals our children

hour detention
for forgetting her pencil
whose data buys time?
