a poem by: Isaac Linnen
The year has started
With a fizzle, not a bang.
But the work still comes in all the same.
All I can say is “Dang.”
From connection issues to user error
Constant restarts, shutdowns, and updates,
With every boot-up I wonder what will cut out this time.
But we move along online
From virtual class to class
Every digital note, paper and assignment
To ensure that we pass.
Some courses are way easier,
Some are thorns in my side.
Remembering due work isn’t a hassle
Thanks to simple PowerPoint slides.
Though I do miss the connections,
Seeing friends and teachers through the day
I would say it’s a reasonable trade off
To save lives in any way.
