TTYL


LOL, hur i am waisting
mai tyme useing a device
tht wuz once used
2 call 'nd say 'Hello'

i lyk useing
improper grammer
and mispelling
important words
even tho
i have been given
a priviledge tht
i take 4 granted

i dun care
'bout mai grades
@ least
i tried my best
'nd actually
made da effert
2 show up

Ten years later,
they find themselves
confused;
asking about
the job interviews.

I did nothing wrong,
I believe it went well.
All I said at the end
was 'ttyl'.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Many of today's teenager can be found with an iPhone texting and on social medias. What do these youngsters all do in common? They 'forget' about their education and waste their skills when they decide to not use correct grammar and spell words correctly.

With this in mind, I produced this poem. Basically what this poem tells is of a person who would text like shown in the first three stanzas. When they find themselves looking for jobs, they do not understand that because they did not use their writing skills correctly in the past, they cannot pursue a career for having these intolerable skills.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
