My English Sucks …..[english ('poor') : Almost Medium Length; Education And Life; Ph- Inspired]

When I were schooled english wernt my thing.
My scores in English lurning no bells done ring.
Yea I grajaded but ain't english smart ….no lie!
Come end a school year the teach said 'By Bri.'

Was same in bilogy, math, jografy all that stuff.
I done did my best and guess my best were enough.
I did done grate at ball games and in trak run the mile.
I was a THREEletter man and made them girls smile.

I got payed for pumpin gas an turned 18 served my Nation.
For 'Bravry Under Fire' in the NAM I were town sensation.
Back home, all tired, I done gone back to the gas station …..
and worked evry week I culd with no vacasion.

One thing lurned what done good for me was fixin cars.
I worked with shirt of to show of my many NAM scars.
A day done come I met a girl from my dreams.
We got now three kids and life is good it seams.

I think my English done even proved a litle bit ….
but if it don't I don't' mind cuz I is happy an don't give no shit.

Loved the poem! Humour and wisdom together!
Fantastic poem.. very beautiful...with nice diction... thanks
Nice poem, fell in loved with it. You really talked about the way education is and it advantages. I really enjoyed it.
I read your poem again. I am convinced -it is excellent.you served your nation; you pumped gas; you are proud of it. I appreciate your sincerity. Who cares for grammar and spelling-they are not important in life.The poem itself is very enjoyable. regards
A day done come I met a girl from my dreams. I guess it was your best day
