Attention span

Tip-tap, tip-tap:
pens tapped on paper;
But my attention tapered
off… off… off…

Tick-tock, tick-tock:
the time marched on;
But my attention was by now
gone… gone… gone…

Crick-crack, crick-crack:
teacher’s teeth are gnashing,
while; did-dud, did-dud:
my heart is racing.
As she looks at my grade and asks me:
“Why… why… why…?”
I answer her: “My attention said good—
bye… bye… bye…”
