April 4: Sub-par

by allisonkujiraoka

It’s not up to snuff,

not what you’d expect.

It comes up short

in scope, range, and aspect.

It doesn’t measure up,

neither does it make the grade.

It landed on the cutting floor;

it got the ax’s blade.

Not ready for prime time

Not fit for public view

Not hot, not cold, just lukewarm

I’d say you’re all but through.
