Low Marks and Red Corrections

We make a dinner menu
Because we’re talking about
How to make healthy choices
And the sound of the beer bottle being opened
Punctuation mark
A red correction
A failing grade yesterday
Has it been too many days
To fix this grade
As he watches his mother melt down
Hidden behind faked enthusiasm
A paralyzing fear his innocence
Could turn out like this
We plan a menu
And we eat healthy
Except on chocolate chip pancake day
Low Marks
And red corrections
We play video games
And the alcohol does nothing
To chase it away
