where will i plant my feet?
i keep trying to keep steady
but even the level ground
is crooked here
can i look good enough?
i am thin and not ugly
but all the cool guys around

make me look bad
where should i park my car?
it is faster than many
but sure not the fastest, and
black scratches easy
how shall i best invest?
i’ve saved quite a few pennies
but if i improve my plan
i’d have much more

and if i make dean’s list?
the best grades will not last
once they’re marked, in the end
back to zero next spring
i will never keep up —
even leaves skipping past
on the street in the wind
more tension seem to bring
