Old Homework Rattled The Windows

old homework started rattling at the windows;
seeping under the door.
old homework.

name the parts of the ear.
the vocabulary of bones.
the dates of the major invasions

the letters you wrote home
from summer camp
lying, everything's fine.

and Time. Time's up.
pass your papers forward.
and rhyme,

what's an iamb anyway
and will it rhyme with lamb
and can you tell me who I am

or does it even matter
as long as homework gets done
and the sum's the same

checked backwards or forwards
