Trapped among these tiles
behind a barrier built by man,
words with high scored letters – x & y & z
incite a frenzy of angryeeze & fruxtration.
Not a temper tantrum, head beating type
but a piercing itchy rash.
When scratched it oozes puss –
regrets and dismay
for subjecting my children
to their structured teachings.
Time to lay the axe to the board
of this scrabbled game.
