Day 11 Falling Through the Cracks #OctPoWriMo 2018

Suggested poetry form: Cascade (a/b/c, d/e/A, f/g/B, h/i/C); Word Prompts: unexpected, imperfection, slipping, with new eyes, begin again

I am trying the cascade form. Not feeling it today. My son the underachiever. Today, as an adult he is very self motivated.

———–

He did just enough
And he lagged behind
He was smart

He passed his tests
He was barely on level
He did just enough

His handwriting sucked
He struggled in math
And he lagged behind

Did he need to repeat?
The teacher said no
He was smart
