Late again. I’m so sorry. I’ve been in the hospital without access to my computer. My lovely mother-in-law, Julie, brought it to me so I could write this up. I don’t know how good it will be. Yay painkillers!
Erudite: Adjective: possessing or displaying extensive knowledge acquired chiefly from books: learned.
Roommates say, “good night.”
I study alone by candlelight
While they go to bed and their dreams take flight.
Other times they go out to fulfil their appetites
As I compose essays, so erudite.
What a plight.
To become a socialite
Or an academic acolyte?
Balance, why are you out of sight?
