Reading excuse form when you’re called on in class.

Excuse form for when you miss class.

There are ways to prevent someone from pushing your buttons.  There are even ways to assure that you don’t push your own buttons.  Learning patience, via Above the Law.

There are different types of friendships.  There are the friends who are always there, through rain and sun.  There are the fair-weather friends, who abruptly ghost you during dark times.  There are the FINOs, friends in name only, who smile to your face as they insert knives.

Help me demonstrate that Twitter followers can be the first kind of friend.  Help me help someone else.  Via Above the Law.

Just a castaway

An article lost at sea

Another lonely day

With no one here but me

More footnoting

Than any one could bear

Rescue me before I fall into despair

 

I’ll send an article out to the world

I’ll send an article out to the world

I hope that someone accepts my

I hope that someone accepts my

I hope that someone accepts my

A year has passed since I wrote my article

But I should have known this right from the start

Only hope can keep me together

I’ll send my article out to the world

I hope that an editor totally gets my

I hope that an editor gets my

I hope that an editor gets my

Woke up this morning

Don’t believe what I saw

A hundred billion rejections

Washed up on the shore

Seems my article was left alone

Now my article is a castaway

Looking for a home

 

I’ll send my article out in August

I’ll send my article out in August

I hope that someone else gets my

I hope that someone else gets my

I hope that someone else gets my
