I conquered school today.
I vanquished Math.
Battled the minions of Science
Wrestled the Lords of English
Toasted my triumph over History
And won the troth of sweet Music.

I go home
To shine my armor
Sharpen my sword
For tomorrow
I conquer school anew.

(I was watching people pass me by, and this girl emerged from the crowd of mall goers, looking so utterly tired, while holding a bag of chips. I’ve looked like her on a lot of days.)
